When my cousins, sisters, and I were younger, we had all read the book Bridge to Terabithia and were influenced enough to name a certain part of the woods after the imaginary place. We had a certain entrance between two stones that served as the portal into the'magical area' and we decided to built a fort there to be our castle, cabin, teepee, and whatever sort of shelter suited our purposes.
I think it took us about two or three days to haul and stag sticks and logs until we had something that resembled a fortress of sorts. I think I was around 9 or 10 when we built it, so it has stayed standing through 14 heavy Monroe winters, and we've only had to really repair it in certain areas a few times. Not bad! I'm really hoping it will be around for my kids to play in too. It has certainly served many a picnic, nap, story time, and play time so far. It's one of my very favourite places to visit in the world.
