A secret swing

Right off an ordinary walking trail is one of my most favorite secrets in San Jose: a hidden swing!

It's hidden among trees and shrubs right over a calming creek. The water is cool and crisp and chills your toes when you wade out to hop on for a little swing.
If you're the adventurous type, you can climb up this big tree, have someone throw you the swing, jump on...

swinging through the air
...and go flying through the air!

Most people that day, young and old (!), were living on the edge. I couldn't get up the nerve to do it, but maybe next time!

Looks like fun! I hope that rope is sturdy, the creek looks shallow!

it seems to be really sturdy, but you're right, the creek is super shallow!

How magical is that!! Thanks for sharing, I'm always fascinated by the sercet/hidden places that people find in their neighborhood!
