Swingers

One day Alan and I were out for a stroll when we discovered this ridiculously awesome swing in the middle of the woods and over a rip roaring river. Swinging on such a swing has been on my list of things to do for some time now, along with jumping off one of those docks into a lake like they often do in movies and staying in a luxury beach hut.



Specifically, I wanted to find a swing that I could use as a launching point to do a cannon ball into the water with...

But the rip roaring river was really just a trickling creek.

This tree reminds me of an Ent.

Wow, it IS an Ent! Now I have to come up with some clever name for it. Hmmm - Elwood? No, that's a Blues Brother...

How neat is that? It looks like fun. Maybe if it gets rainy your river will be big enough to jump into (I'd be scared anyway).

That tree is amazing! I should start a list of things I want to do. Number one: Explore Machu Picchu. Number two........

That's awesome! I love swinging! My sister and I always go to parks and play like little kids. :)

SOBRINA! I fear for your safety,
watch bridge to terabithia and you will see what I mean, swings are hazardous! especially if you are a blode 5ft child who got abandoned by her best friend just so he can go on a trip to washington with his music teacher who looks alot like zooey deschanel!!!

it looks so serene, the swing, the tree, the warm sunshine, the creek.
a perfect relaxing spot i would say.

Quite the romantic swing you found there...

That tree does have quite a history, I'm sure! Thanks for sharing your special "swinging" moment!

Hello Hello,

Thanks for the comment.
Gresham is..well North of Cottage Grove. CG is a few hours south of there. I think. :]

Haha. Thanks for the congrats. Love this pictures on the swing. My parents have a tree swing, and I would love to take some pictures of the whole family come fall out there under their oak tree. :]
