Unique trees while hiking...

Recommended Posts

Seeing how this is one of my favorite threads, ever on this site, and that you guys all apparently like unusual trees I thought I might pass on some info.


I'm also a huge fan of the film "The Shawshank Redemption". I read the other day that "The Tree" was badly damaged in a bad storm a few days ago. http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/53153/shawshank-tree-damaged-by-thun-1.asp?partner=accuweather


What a shame. When I first started caching I thought that this tree would be the ultimate place for a geocache, being a SR fan. For those that don't know, this was the spot where Andy "cached" some money for Red. I did some homework and found the the tree was in Ohio. Also found out that the stone wall was a prop (and was removed after filming). Also found out the tree is on private property. I got on google earth and searched and think I found the exact place. N40 39.237 W82 23.508 Looks like from the sat imagery that you can see where the stone wall led up from the creek Freeman crossed to find the cache by the tree.


Anyway, just a FYI.

I wasn't hiking, but I found this one while caching. It's called "the indian tree", and it's located on the grounds of the Civic Center in Traverse City, MI. Local legend says it was made by the indians as a pointer or trail marker.



I have a couple of those listed on Waymarking.com in the Native American Trail Trees category.
