It is both beautiful and creepy.
Now picture ropes hanging from the top of this architectural wonder. Imagine those ropes connecting to a full-size, padded chair. The swing of all swings that would be, and indeed exists, on this treehouse. I've got a great video of it, which I'd love to share, but seeing as uploading these few photos has taken me two hours, I don't think I'll go for sharing the video tonight.
Because internet service is not something to love about the South, but that's not what this post or series is about.
I kid you not, you can feel the ever-so-slightly swaying of the mighty Oak Tree foundation at the top of this lookout tower. It feels just as a tree looks when it gives way to a breeze. Bizarre. Unusual. But this treehouse is something any Alaskan do-it-yourselfer can appreciate.
