    Trees,,,

    When I was young, I loved to climb trees. There was a cherry tree in our back yard that was next to my Dad's garden shed. On the warm summer days, I would climb that tree and stay up there forever. I always wondered what it would be like to live in a tree. I loved the way the...

    Climbing Trees

    I Still Do :)

    I climb trees a lot just to get away from people. It makes me feel free. I like to try and find a place on a tree where I can balance and let the wind blow my hair back. It's a wonderful feeling.

    I'll Still Climb a Tree At 51

    Just dare me.  That's all it takes.  Point out a tree and I'm there. "What tree is my favorite tree?" The one I sit and lean on old oak. The one I climb with my eyes closed. I watch as I'm climbing the trunk. I'm reaching from one branch to another...

    In My Youth

    When I was younger it was what I did. I'd climb trees. Then I got to be age 12 and I didn't fit in the trees I was climbing so well anymore. I guess that's when it lost it's spark. But I use to love the crap out of it. Sometimes I still dream of running...

    I Loved and Still Do

    When I'd visit my dad there was a enormous tree in the front yard and with my sloth like way of climbing I'd go to the top and would sit comfortably there for hours and look out at the sky and view as time went by. Now there aren't many trees but when I see one that looks...

    Perfect Escape

    When I was young I might have been told not to leave the yard for whatever it was I may have been being punished for, so I would climb trees. The higher the better. It was a great place to hide and think. I could stay there for hours. I could ignore my mom calling me and...

    I Still Climb Trees

    I've always loved tree climbing ever since I was 4. I'd sit up in a tree for hours, usually reading, drawing, or tweaking my imagination. I still do, I'm going into eighth grade and still enjoy the rush ( I'm aware of what age my profile says, it's wrong). I have a two story...

    :D

    There was this tree in my grandmother's yard when I was little that practically begged to be climbed. There was a certain level you could climb up to and it looked just like a chair, complete with armrests. My younger sister and I used to climb up there and hide and talk about...

    Tomboy Tree Climber

    I started very young and continue to do so in my forties. One lesson learned..do not climb to the top of pine tree's and look down. Especially when the top of the tree is bending over from weight of chunky twelve year old.

    The Taller the Better!

    I lived to climb trees as a child.  I lived on a farm with a huge grove of trees bordering it which sat on a small knoll that was higher than the rolling green pastures that it surrounded.  When I was angry, hurt or just tired of the others in my family I used to "...
