The tree tunnel

Patricia, one of our locals, mentioned this spot to me a while back: the tree tunnel. I didn’t realize that she was referring to this spot until I went looking for it down the street she mentioned. “Oh, yes! This place! Of course!” I pass it all the time. This is a private road, an entrance to a homesite. It is as enigmatic as it looks: dark, narrow, and even a little foreboding. And there is a “No Trespassing” sign near the first tree.

You’ve got to stand back at some distance to see the full length of the trees. From the north you can see a home at the end of the drive. It doesn’t look at all like the Addams Family spooky mansion you might expect but you wouldn’t know that from the street.

  1. People around here can be very serious about their “no trespassing” signs and many people have guns. (A man recently “discouraged” a pair of home invaders by shooting at them through his front door.) I don’t readily explore unless it’s an area where I’m sure it’s okay!
