Near earth aerial pursuits

If only all trees made themselves this available for climbing. The trees at City Park in New Orleans seem to accomodate the young aerial artists, well. They probably took the ground route many years ago because of the number of little feet that kept pushing them down.

In any case, they have made millions of kids happy over the years. I remember my own years of excitement of climbing the massive reclining limbs.

it's the monkey tree! Or at least that what we called it in my youth. I still love climbing it, it never gets old.
