Last summer Cuppa and I made our first trip out to BC and blogged a lot about it. Fear not: I am not about to reprise the trip, but I would like to make mention of a certain wonderful tree in wonderful Stanley Park. This hollow tree has been a great attraction in a great park for many decades, and this is Cuppa inside it.
It is 700 years old, but, as the next photo shows, it has been hollowed out for quite some time now and has been visited and photographed by locals and tourists for decades.
Sadly though, last night Vancouver City Council voted to have it cut down because it had become a danger, or so they believed. It had been supported by cables, but they still deemed the danger too great.
Although its remains will continue to be displayed as an attraction, I'm rather glad that we got to visit the old thing while it remained standing.
Great wasn't it?
