The four of us took a lovely walk in the woods yesterday. We followed a stream and, at some point, lost the trail. So we blazed one of our own and stumbled upon deer, vultures, and army of squirrels, two hawks and a red-headed woodpecker. Whilst wondering through said woods - tromping through creeks and trying not to get hung up on thorns - we found a ladder in the trees. I'm guessing some kid built it - and the platform at its top - to hang out in. I'm glad he did. It provided the most awesome juxtaposition of the day.

Thank god Owen can't read...and that Mia was oblivious.

Ha. How idyllic. (Maybe Mia was just pretending to be oblivious?)

I can hardly wait to hear about when they find these photo of themselves when they're in junior high!

I imagine if you came across a ladder and a platform in the woods, it was a tree stand for deer hunting, not something built by kids. The FU would either be aimed at non-hunters or other hunters who would use the stand for themselves, or dismantle it and use the parts to re-construct a stand of their own somewhere else.

Yes, those look like they would be used by hunters. It would also help to explain the graffiti - probably somebody upset by hunting. Just a thought!
