Favorite Foto Friday

This picture of us in front of the Big Cypress was taken at Eric's deer camp south of Sheridan in the fall of 2004. This tree is gigantic and it's protected by the National Registry (or something like that). Eric couldn't remember the details, but I'm sure his dad knows all about it. This day was so neat. We rode down to the camp with Eric's dad and Scarlet. I was amazed by the roots of the tree that came back up out of the ground. They are called cypress knees. The woods were so cool looking on that day-I kept thinking it looked like something out of Lord of the Rings.

The weather was perfect and we rode around the deer camp on a four-wheeler and it was my first time to see everything. Eric had been hunting there since he was about 8 years old. It's crazy to think that Luke could start hunting the fall of 2009! I don't think so!
