I was intrigued by comments about “The Twisted Tree” in my recent Facebook post July 13, 2017, about the pine trees and Mt Mesley, also posted here on this blog.
After a little searching through family archives, I found a couple of my late mother’s old photo’s, labelled “The Crooked Tree”, dated Jan, 1936.
This, in fact turns out to be the better known “Twisted Tree”.
In the pictures are: Olive Kracke (aged 24), Beth McCoy, and Elaine Cowper.
Judging from the Facebook comments, the “Twisted Tree” had many a tale to tell!
Unfortunately, the tree was destroyed in the 2006 fires that engulfed Mt Mesley.
