Magic in the Woods

So one day a couple of years ago I was walking on the rail-trail, alongside the river in back of my house.

I thought I saw something out of the corner of my eye

I went closer... what IS that?

Are you kidding me? It's a little door on leather hinges!

Inside is a little troll, and a tupperware container with a note that says, "Take a trinket, leave a trinket". It was wonderful! Somebody had planted a little treat box for those who look for magic in the woods. Well since that day, our trail has turned into Troll Trail; according to the newspaper, there are now 15 troll houses in total. Last week I found two more of them.

I'm not going to open this last door and show you... you'll just have to come and discover the contents for yourself...


  1. How cool is that? I love it when people do anonymous little things like this. We all need pleasant unexpectedness in our lives.

  2. Really neat! Across the street from where I live is the perfect tree that I always felt needed a door such as this. Maybe I should just apply one with something behind it? I really like this too.
