Secret Hideout!!

I came upon a giant hollow sycamore in Loveland, Ohio, that kids had (of course) been using as a fort. Sorry the photos are not the best, but I just had the IPhone with me as a camera, and I could not get down the steep embankment in what I was wearing in order to get closer for a better shot! I am sharing today with "Friday My Town Shoot Out!"

  1. What a great find for this week's challenge. I would have loved a tree like this when I was a kid!

    1. Thanks! Isn't it great?!? That's my 16yo in the picture. He is about 6'1" or so...and look how big that hollow is! Several adults can stand upright in there!

  5. That's an absolutely perfect hidden niche. It is even strategically sited above a strea;, it really could be a fort in disguise. Love it!
