These photos were taken earlier this week when I was looking for cows.  I was particularly attracted to this little spot because I thought when I was a child I would have loved a place like this to play in.


I can see my younger self making forts and little cozy hiding spots in among the branches and creek and tree trunks, imagining all sorts of wilderness survival adventures.  I was that kind of imaginer.  Others probably would have dreamed of fairies and nymphs – I know my sister Elizabeth would have!

I will go back to his spot in the late spring/early summer to see what it is like with long grass and leaves on the trees.  I bet it will still be the ideal spot for an imaginative child to hang out and make up adventures!

  1. I’m loving these places you found when you were out looking for cows! That is just the kind of place I loved to play when I was a kid.
