A tree house is a frivolous thing. No practical value (unless you’re living in the African bush). But if you can recall that childhood rush of climbing to the top of a tree for absolutely no reason other than the joy of doing it, you can appreciate what brings four good friends (and friends of) together every year to re-experience that feeling.
Tree House III (this is the third year of the project) is in the middle of the Prairie GardenTrust, which is managed by my friend Henry. He invited me to to come and be part of TH3 this weekend, which was perfect in every way.
The project was well-blogged (with minimal help from me) with iPhones, cameras and MacBooks everywhere you looked.
We finished the day yesterday by climbing up to the third level (about 30 feet up) to enjoy the view and reflect on project.
