Does the Carleton Arb have a new contender for the title of ‘Spooky Old Tree’?

spookyoldtreecoverBack in 2008, I blogged about the demise of the spooky old tree in Carleton’s Lower Arb.

Last week, Robbie and I had breakfast with Northfield newcomers Rebecca Bliss and her husband Don Hasseltine (new VP of External Relations at Carleton). 

When I told their young daughters about the spooky old tree in the Arb, they alerted me to a spooky tree they discovered in the Upper Arb that "only creaks when people walk by."

So with moms and dogs in tow, we paid the tree a visit on Tuesday and sure enough, it creaked just loud enough for a hearing impaired geezer to hear.  Freaky.
