home in the woods

This is a shelter on the Appalachian Trail. This is a trail that runs from Georgia to Maine in the eastern United States. The trail runs well over 2,000 miles. Many people hike the entire trail each year. All along the trail people have built shelters, like this one, for weary hikers to stay in. These shelters serve as home to many tired souls and a few hungry mice.

This tree, located in the southeastern United States (Georgia), looks like it has been and could be a home to many different animals.

I think a lot of things could live in that tree. That thing was huge!

A very cool spot. I may go with you some time. I like the shelter picture. I love trees... never got why some people just dont like them, you know?
