The Big Tree

June 14, 2014

Found, Journal, Lloyd

In college we used to go out to this big tree –which we called, “The Big Tree.” It was this tree in the middle of nowhere. Well, actually it is about 2 miles West of Seward and only a half-mile from nowhere as it is in the middle of a section.

On Thursday, after successfully executing Burger Night at R.O.’s with Sam and Rachel,we decided to go out and introduce Rachel, Anna and Gracen to The Big Tree. I regret that I didn’t take any pictures from further away…

I’ll admit that it doesn’t look that big in the above picture. Lets get closer…

Still a little bit hard to tell. Lets put some people in there for scale…

I don’t remember it being hollowed out like that the last time we were out here. So that must have happened within… I don’t know. The last decade? Here’s a shot from the other side…

    That tree is huge! Are the black marks on the trunk burns? Was it hit by lightning?

    You could build a little house in that tree. A creepy, creepy house.

    And whilst in college, what did you do at the BIG tree?
