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!
