A Mysterious Bamboo Teepee Grows In The Heart Of The Tandy Hills & Denise The Indian Needs To Check Her Gmail
Over the years of hiking on the Tandy Hills.
But, today was the strangest yet.
I was rather enjoying the late afternoon hiking. Perfect temperature. Wind blowing.
I went down one of the steeper hills, crossed a creek, took the option to the right that required going under some low hanging branches.
Popped out from under the low hanging branches to a small clearing to find myself startled by the structure you see above.
A teepee framework made of bamboo.
There is no bamboo growing on the Tandy Hills that I have ever seen.
Yet, someone hauled in multiple bamboo poles, with the leaves still attached. There is a pile of bamboo leaves laying on the ground around the perimeter of the teepee frame.
I'm guessing I am going to be asked exactly where this bamboo teepee frame is located.
Take the main View Street trail to the Tandy Hills. Take the first right from that trail. Continue east on that trail, down the steep hill, across the creek. When you get across the creek take the trail to the right. The bamboo teepee frame is just on the other side of the line of trees.
Is this teepee the first of many? An Indian Village in the making? A new Fort Worth Homeless People Shanty Town?
And on a totally different subject, Denise, check your Gmail. I have a question for you.
