Another Orb

Jack and the Agent were both gone today when I woke up. I checked the area and made sure they weren't close, and then grabbed the blue orb.

Inside the blue orb, I saw a man taking pictures of a cave. It wasn't too out of the ordinary were it not for one thing: the cave he was taking pictures of was the cave Jack and I were hiding out in. The one Brandon and Emily were killed in.

I've never seen the man before, but he was wearing a red hat with a white A on it that looked strikingly familiar, but I couldn't place it. He certainly isn't what I THOUGHT I saw in the orb the other day, because I would never forget the face of the person I thought I saw... I think.

It was just a glance, though... I still remember his face. I haven't forgotten him. No, that's ridiculous. I remember him.

Maybe if I say it enough times it'll be true.

Jack is hiding something.

We've been "working" for the Agent for a few weeks now, and I've come to the conclusion that Jack knows something he isn't telling me. He'll leave the cave for hours at a time, come back exhausted, and go to sleep immediately, not even acknowledging my questions. I'll go to sleep before he wakes up, and then when I wake up the Agent is there, standing over the orbs while Jack sits in the corner.

When they were both gone one day I picked up one of the other orbs - the green one - and stared into it. I saw a man with a large camera taking photographs of trees. The scene shifted, and I saw another person taking photographs of trees in a different location. The scene continued to change, showing many people taking photographs with many different kinds of cameras. I put the orb back, and not much later Jack came running back in, giving me an accusatory stare - somehow, he knew.

I haven't looked into the other ones yet, but I caught a glimpse of something in the blue orb that, if true, means that we are in danger. I am awaiting a chance to look into it and see if what I saw was what is actually there.

If it is, then may God help me.

Actually, that should be god, not God.

Update #10

I'm sorry it's been so long since my last update. I know you guys were probably more than a little concerned, given everything that has happened, and I suppose I oWe you an explanation.

Not long after my last update the phone I have been using stopped working altogether. The screen was black and it wouldn't turn on. I'm not exactly sure what had kept it running so long anyway - but at any ratE, it wasn't functioning, so I couldn't update, check e-mail, or anything of the sort. I tried to find a phone on the bodies, but was unsuccessful. I was cut off from the outside world completely.

With nothing else left to do, no leads to follow or things to investigate, I decided to go back through the door back to the redwood forest where I found Jack and that creature. I approached the door and then the whispering sound that I heArd back in the redwood forest showed up again, but much louder this time. I was able to make out two short phrases in the loud mess of voices: "you aren't done yet" and "the agent is coming".

I ran from the door quicKly and went back to my cave, staying there the rEst of the night, listening to the voices over and over in my memory. They're haunting. I can still hear them very clearly. The next day, after vaiN attempts at sleeping, I decided to go back to the door. When I got there, however, it was wide open. The photo of the redwoods was on the ground again, so the door was opened into the forest I was in. I approached It carefully, and wheN I got right next to the frame, the creature Glided straight in front of me.

I didn't move. I was frozen with fear. The thing looked - well, it doesn't have eyes, but if it did - looked straight into mY eyes and stared for a few seconds. The longer it stared, the more oddly relaxed I became. It took a step - well, sort of glided, I didn't see its legs move - backward and extended a hand, beckoning me step forward through the door. BefOre I could react my legs moved forward and the door closed behind me.

It was just me and the creature in the clearing on the other side of the door. I didn't dare look at it again, for fear of the odd hold it seemed to have over my mind and body. I heard the door behind me open again, and the creature glided throUgh and once again beckoned me through to the other side. This time, however, there was a large expanse behind the door - dark, with a very dim light off in the distance. Once again I stepped through not of my own volition, but by this point I didn't really care - I wanted to see what this creature was doing.

It was a hallway - stone, maybe. I walked and the creature glided for what felt like hours , but eventually we reached the light at the end. It was still very dimly lit, but in the room was an odd altar-like structure with five glass orbs resting on it. More important, Jack sat in the corner. There was no evidence of the gunshot wound from my previous attempt to kill the creature. He didn't seem to notice that we had entered until I called his name, and even then he very slowly looked up and said hello very halfheartedly, as if he wasn't surprised to see me.

Then he started talking.

Now, I warn you: this may be rather alarming given past events in the blog. You may think I have gone crazy, but I can assure you that I am in my right mind in every way and that everything I say is true.

Jack told me that the creature is called the Agent. He said that we have to help him. I asked him what we needed to help him do, and why we should help him given what he has done to us. He didn't say anything. He walked over to the altar with the glass orbs - I noticed then that there were spots for two more - and picked up a pink one and placed it in my hands.

I looked inside, and saw what looked like the creature shackled and tied to a wall. An unseen being was striking the Agent with a blunt instrument. The message was fairly clear - this creature was a slave.

Jack took the orb and placed it back on the altar, then picked up the candle that was illuminating the room. He walked over to the wall and beckoned me over. On the wall in an untidy scrawl were written hundreds of short messages. The most important ones were "blackthirteen" (all as one word) and "he kills and killed them".

Jack says we have to help this creature, the Agent, and end "blackthirteen" so that we can go home. I have no choice but to trust him.

Update #9

That was an incredibly stupid thing to do.

I'm not sure what exactly came over me... but as you can see from the past few updates, I clearly flat out tried to attack that thing.

After that last blog post, I went through the door into the redwood forest. I walked around for about three hours before I started hearing things. It was sort of like a person talking, but it was very hushed as if they were whispering so that a person only right next to them could hear. I couldn't make out what it was saying. At this point I realized that I had drawn the gun I found in the other forest. I was somewhat disoriented by that, and walked away confused.

Another few hours passed. I found another door - or maybe it was the same door? I couldn't tell. At any rate, I approached with caution - due caution, in fact, as moments later I found myself tackled to the ground. I fought back briefly before seeing that it was Jack, with a sort of glazed look in his eyes. I tossed him off of me and saw the creature not far behind him, standing off to the side. I reached for my gun and took aim, and fired a shot.

The bullet hit the creature in the head, but nothing happened. The creature slowly tilted its head to the left, as if studying me. As I took aim again, I saw its arm make a very slow motion. I fired another shot. Jack jumped in front of the creature, and the bullet hit two of his fingers on his left hand. I heard his anguished cry and glanced over at him for a brief second before turning back to the creature to take aim. In that instant, the creature was upon me and I felt myself shoved through the door nearby back into the other forest, with the door slamming shut behind me.

What made me think that creature could be harmed - much less outright killed - by normal bullets is beyond me, but it was foolish, rash, and dangerous, and I only ended up hurting Jack even more. But now I know I have to find some way to save him, after seeing what that creature has done to him.

(Oh, and a parting note: While the phone is clearly still operational, the brief brawl with Jack led to the screen cracking a good deal. I can still read it and use the touch screen, but it isn't in perfect condition anymore. I hope it continues to work.)

Update #8

Oh shit. Looks like that thing is using Jack to make blog posts again. Fortunately, I can still get in. Unfortunately, for some reason, I can neither change the password nor delete the post. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I don't really care. Whatever the hell that thing is, it's once again using Jack as a proxy for whatever twisted schemes it has in store.

I found a weapon on a corpse today with some ammunition. I fired a shot off to make sure it worked; I'll have to get used to the recoil, but otherwise it's fine. I also found a knife and some food rations, since there aren't likely to be a bunch of corpses in California.

I checked on the door again today, and it appears to be in working order still. I'm going through tomorrow after resting tonight.

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Hi guys. Did you miss me? Sorry its been so long since my last post i went on vacation.

Update #7

Today is a new day.

I gathered up my strength and went back to the door. I didn't bother opening it or doing anything of the type with it this time; rather, I simply searched around it for clues as to where Jack was taken. And by some divine luck, I found something.

A photo of tall redwood trees lying not far from the door. The redwoods look to be the same type that you find in California.

The creature has taken Jack to California. I'm going after him.

Now I know you guys will say I'm walking into a trap. But I know this, and I want to walk right into it. This thing abducted me, abducted Jack twice. I'm going to find it. And I'm going to kill it.

I'm going to remain here for a few days and gather supplies, and hopefully a weapon. Then I'm going through the door. Let that creature find me - I'll kill it.

Friday, September 9, 2011

Update #6

I can't believe I let it happen.

We were walking through the forest, moving locations again. Jack was more himself than he has been since we found Brandon and Emily.

And then we found another door.

This one was almost identical, but it didn't have the symbol scratched into the paint. Otherwise they were indistinguishable. Different this time, however, was the surrounding area. Whereas the other door was in the middle of an area just as heavily wooded as the rest of the forest, this one seemed to be in a large, circular clearing - as if it were designed to be placed here.

I ran a typical scan of the door. Hinges, doorknob, everything was intact. I then tried opening the door, and to my great surprise, it did. There was no photo in the frame this time, however, so upon opening the door I just saw the forest behind it. Jack was suddenly interested, now seeing that there was no danger, and came up beside me.

I stepped through the door frame, wondering if the forest on the otherside was the same. There were no outward differences that I could immediately ascertain. I turned around.

Jack was standing on the otherside of the frame, looking straight through the center. Directly behind him, towering over him, was the creature.

I'm not sure if I screamed or not, but I was paralyzed with fear. Suddenly the door slammed shut as I lunged forward to save Jack. I opened the door, but on the otherside, both Jack and the creature were gone.

I shouldn't have messed with it. I should have focused on getting out of the forest. He was right. I was wrong. Now he's gone and it's all my fault. I'm alone now - I don't know what is going to happen to me.

Monday, September 5, 2011

Update #5

This was just sent to me from the same number.

97 72 82 48 99 68 111 118 76 50 74 112 100 67 53 115 101 83 57 117 87 107 112 82 100 109 115 61

If you guys translated those last messages correctly, then this creature thing must be the "agent"; and I don't like that. It implies it's working for something greater than it, which is a horrifying thought.

As for "black 13 is notleased"; that didn't make much sense to me, either. I went back to the original text and compared it to my post, and when I was posting it, it looks like I left out two numbers.

1862 2052 1843 1881 2033 608 931 969 608 1995 2185 608 2090 2109 2204 608 2128 2052 1919 1843 2185 1919 1900 874

That is the full text; I've double checked. See if it makes any more sense.

I haven't seen the creature yet, and Jack seems a little more himself today, so that is a good thing. We're still moving pretty often though.

Sunday, September 4, 2011

Update #4

The creature found our cave last night. We quickly put out the fire and I think we avoided being noticed; at any rate, the creature just left - though I'm nearly certain that as he turned around, he made brief eye contact - if he had eyes at least - with me before leaving.

As soon as dawn hit, Jack started running faster than he's ever run here. I was only just able to keep up with him. He didn't stop for almost an hour. As we ran I caught a few glimpses of terrain features around us; the trees appeared to be growing denser, and I could have sworn I saw either the same door we had previously found or another one like it.

We've found a new cave, but we've decided to move caves more often now; the creature appears to be better at finding us than we thought.

As for those messages, still not sure what to make of them. "return to the agent"? I'm going to keep digging through this phone to see if I can find anything to make better sense of it.

Friday, September 2, 2011

Update #3

Punxtr decoded the message for us in the comments: "you will not escape. the cycle will not be broken." I don't like the sound of that.

Since we have figured out that these can be translated, there are a few more that look like the same encoding.

I have a feeling that making sense of these messages is going to be crucial at some point. I haven't told Jack about them, though. I don't want to trouble him if I don't have to.

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Update #2

Jack is still disturbed. He's opened up a little more, but not much. He still spends much of his time blankly staring off into space. I don't want to imagine what must be going through his mind right now. I think this may even be the first time he is fully realizing the danger this creature poses - his own actions back in Alabama may be hitting him full force for the first time.

Anyway, I decided to take a better look through this phone. I have found it odd to say the least that this phone has managed to stay charged for several weeks. So I opened up the battery door. There was just a normal battery in there, nothing out of the ordinary. After that I decided to inspect the device's software. Everything appeared fine until I started reading old text messages.

Here is one message, from the number "252-2513"; there was no area code: "eW91IHdpbGwgbm90IGVzY2FwZS4gdGhlIGN5Y2xlIHdpbGwgbm90IGJlIGJyb2tlbi4=" It was sent on June 18th. Jack's birthday.

There are a lot like this, but this one message was sent three times on the same day for some reason.

Also: Jack's middle name is Anderson.

Monday, August 29, 2011


Hello - this is Serah.

Jack is really rattled right now. He barely speaks. Once he wrote that last post, he sat against the wall of the new cave we've been sleeping in and stared at the opposite wall without saying anything. He would wordlessly swap shifts with me when we were standing guard, though I offered to let him sleep more; he needs it, the poor kid.

He's been remarkably strong throughout this; I think this most recent incident is simply the straw that broke the camel's back. While the creature clearly had sinister intentions, it was unclear whether it was capable of real harm; this sort of proves that it is, and I think that has really terrified Jack.

Anyway - since I'm here, I'll update you guys on things Jack has failed to mention. Jack has been wholly focused on getting home, with little regard to the creature other than avoiding it. I, however, feel that the creature is our way home if indirectly, and think that learning as much about it as we can can only help our chances of survival. To this end, I have been pestering Jack for more details on his story, but he gives me only cursory examples. The small bits that I have match up rather eerily with my own story.

I was 16 when the creature began stalking me. It started not long after my father returned from his trip to Japan, and it lasted around a month before the eventual encounter where I fell into its trance. That was a day before my birthday, and I burned my house down at its urging and walked out of the blaze into its open arms. The next day - the day I turned 17 - I awoke here, in this godforsaken forest.

That was in March. In May, I found a group of three other children - Brandon was among them. He was 17 as well, and I spent much of my time with him. We grew... fond of each other, let's say. Very fond, in fact. When the other four children showed up in June, we were inseparable. It was only out of concern for the younger children - Emily and Jack, the two youngest - that we agreed to separate.

To see him like that is a pain I'm not sure I can properly convey through text. That image will haunt me for the rest of my life, no matter how long it proves to be.

Jack and I are going to continue moving locations. We've put the thoughts of the door behind us, for the moment, though I know it will eventually come back to that.

Now, I'm not stupid. I've read The Dark Tower. I recognize the signs here; Black 13 imprinted on some mystical door than can open on numerous realities and that is supposed to be some coincidence? No. Clearly some larger game is afoot here.

For example? My name is Serah Grace Henderson. 19 letters. I haven't asked Jack, but I will guarantee you his middle name has eight letters. I don't know what this all means - but it's cause for concern. If King's works have made the leap into reality... you may not be safe reading this blog.

Door Trials #1

We spent much of the past few days searching nearby bodies of suicides, and we finally found a Polaroid camera (even though it's 2011). We took a picture of the interior of the cave we've been hiding in and then set off in search of the door. When we got there, acting on advice that you guys had given us, we placed the photo into the triangles, which is apparently a photo frame.

Once we did so, we were able to open the door, which swung outward. When we opened the door, we saw ourselves looking in on our cave.

We shut the door, removed the photo, and found that the door had locked itself. We took off back to the cave before night fell, but found something rather unsettling when we reached it. Not far in, about halfway to the point where we had been sleeping, we began seeing blood smears on the wall. When we reached the point where we had been sleeping, we found the bodies of Brandon and Emily, two of the other survivors, disemboweled and propped up against the cave wall, as if sitting down casually next to each other. Despite the gruesome state of their bodies, their faces were untouched and appeared normal, with the exception of being ghostly white and frozen in a look of horror. Perhaps most unsettling, however, is the symbol drawn above their heads in (probably their own) blood.

We ran all night away from that cave, and we have found another one. We are sleeping in shifts to look out for anything so we don't meet the same fate.

I'm scared.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Hey guys. I don't have any new information for you, but since I have a minute in between moving around to avoid the creature, I thought I'd address some of your concerns.

Xankek said...

Jack, Are there leaves around the door that do not seem to match the leaves of the forest?

As far as I remember, no. The door is the only conspicuous feature of the area it is in.

Nemo said...

Directions for a sliding puzzle perhaps? Do the triangles appear to be loose in any way?

The pieces are rigidly attached to the door frame, actually. They won't budge. I will say though that they aren't flush against the door; they are protruding somewhat from the door.

Xander sent me this message in an e-mail, originally sent in base64 code:

"Jack, can you give me a drawing or picture of the triangles on the door? I am looking to help. Also, what is your real age? And can you give me some information on the Serah girl?"

First, the base64 is no longer necessary I think. The reason I was sending messages in base64 at first was because I felt there would be a much lower chance of the creature understanding it and realizing what I was doing. Now that I'm fully in control of the blog again, we should be okay to communicate in plain text. On the safe side, however, we had best not exchange pictures in case we unknowingly contribute to the creature's plans.

More to your point, I'm 13. Everything the creature said in the blog was true, but why it wrote in that God awful style I can't say; it's insulting, really. Serah, on the other hand, is 17, and has been since March. She says it's been a long time since the creature brought her here, but it was under the same circumstances - she was compelled to burn her house down by the creature near her birthday. Beyond that, her father was a traveller, and would often go on long trips out of the country. One of his more recent trips was to Japan, interestingly enough.

That's all the information I have for you as of now. We're going to make another trek to the door soon; let me know if you have theories that I should investigate while there.

Door Update #1

The creature was back yesterday. We couldn't leave the cave for very long, as on our way to the door we spotted it walking slowly through the woods. It didn't see us, or at least didn't pursue us, as we made it back to the cave safely.

We ventured back out today in search of more firewood, being very careful, and found the door again, which is odd because we weren't exactly searching for it, and it seemed to be in a different spot than last time. At any rate, we inspected it while we could.

It is still locked, but there are some new developments. I found an image-creating app on this phone and used it to sketch a few of the things on the door. First, the imgur link that was hidden in previous posts does display the correct symbols on the door; but it's only the top row. The top three symbols are in large, black print above the door.

Second, the triangles.

This is what they look like. They haven't moved and appear to be in the same condition as they were in our previous encounter with the door. Still not sure what to make of these.

Third, the paint on the door - it's a deep blue - has been chipped off near the bottom, forming this symbol.

Once again, not sure what to make of it. I've never seen a symbol quite like it, though it appears in some ways to resemble an hourglass. I don't think it's Japanese script because it's been scraped into the door while the script is written in black.

One final observation - the doorknob is loose. Last time it was pretty rigid, and while it is still locked and secured to the door right now, it is a fair bit looser than it was before, as a knob gets with heavy use.

Serah and I had to run back to the cave as night was starting to fall. We haven't decided if we should go back or not, and we're having some slight disagreements on how to proceed. Serah wants to bash the door open, while I fear that may disrupt whatever purpose the door is intended for. I have some feeling that this is our way home, but I can't be sure how.

Will update when I have more information to share. Stay safe, and let me know if you see any instances of the creature or something like it near you. If he's not here, I don't want to think what he must be up to.

A Locked Door

We've been moving constantly the past few days. Serah swears that she saw it a few hours ago, so we've been running ever since. We're inside a cave at the moment, heading right into the mountainside.

We're still in the forest. Assuming it is in Japan, we'd have to cross the ocean to get home, and that isn't something we're likely to accomplish. If we stay in the forest, however, we have some chance of finding wayward travelers - but even more than that, that creature had to bring us here somehow. Perhaps we can find whatever dimensional passage or whatnot the creature used to get us here, and use it to get back to the U.S. (Serah is from the U.S. too, she lives in California).

Anyway, the reason I'm updating you guys is that we've made an interesting discovery. In the forest today we found a door. In the middle of the forest, it was just standing there in a frame connected to nothing but the ground. On the door in huge black script were some Japanese symbols - neither of us can read it, unfortunately. Below the symbols are four strange metal triangles, arranged into a rectangle, with the triangles at the corners.

What is weird is that when we tried to take a photo of the door to show you guys and see if you could translate the symbols, all the camera picked up was the forest behind it. No door. The door is, for some reason, locked from both sides. We have a strong feeling that this door is related to the creature, somehow. When we go back out tomorrow we are going to try and find it to investigate some more.

If you have any ideas as for how we can translate these symbols, please let me know.

6 - Answers.

Hello readers of this blog. I am Jack Redding, and this is the first time I will have spoken to you in plain text.

The person posting on this blog is not a person, but a creature with the appearance of a man in a suit, but lacking a face. This is the man who was stalking me during the month of June, and the events played out almost exactly as they were reported on this blog. The day before my birthday the creature cornered me in the woods, and I only remember parts of the weeks following. I remember setting my house on fire and walking out of the burning house into the arms of the creature while my parents were burned alive inside. I remember waking up in this forest, which some of your emails seem to suggest may be Aokigahara

I have been using a phone that I found on one of the many hanged corpses in the forest to send emails and make blog posts, but I have been posting them in base64 so the creature cannot read them - at least, I do not think he can read them.

I do not know the creature's purpose in bringing me here, but I am not the only one brought here by it - I found a group of others, all abducted as well. In the interest of remaining safe and undetected by the creature, the group of us - there are around ten - split off into pairs. I am travelling with a girl named Serah, who is seventeen - she was one of the oldest.

We have only suspicions about why he wanted photos of trees, but since the request was quite fervent and inexplicable, we suspect that the purposes are malicious. This is why we have been asking you not to send photos, and we continue to ask that you only send plain text.

For the time being we are safe from the creature and feel safe in taking full control of the blog and e-mail account and are working to find our way back home. What is important, however, is that innocent lives are protected and that you readers did not fall prey to the creature.

There are still a lot of questions we have yet to answer and would greatly appreciate your help, as you provide a link to the outside world that internet alone cannot provide. We will be posting as often as we can, safely, to try and find our way back home.



Hi guys! Today is my birthday and im really excited! Dad is going to take me on a nature hike in some woods nearby. I also got a really cool phone with a video camera in it so im going to take some video on the walk and show you guys when i get back.

Monday, August 15, 2011

update and more pictures

Hey guys sorry ive been gone for a while. After that weird guy and the police station I didnt leave the house for a few days. I went outside for a little while today and talked to my neighbor. Hes a nature photographer and he just got back from Japan a few days ago. He was showing me some cool pictures of this one place he went to but I cant pronounce or spell the name.

Anyway I checked my email and there are a couple pictures of trees this time.

I like this one because it is so brightly colored while the rest are jsut your normal green leafs. It may not be the type of tree and it might just be that it isnt all the way fall yet but its still a cool picture.

These trees are the long and thin and it looks like there is a thunderstorm coming and it might strike them and dead trees are really creepy, like the ones in the mean picture with the burned ones before.

Dont forget to keep sending my pictures

emergency update 2

My parents got home and took me to the police station after i told them about the tree or person or whatever. It was there when they pulled into the driveway but it was gone when I told them to go look at it. My dad talked to the police in a small room while i sat outside with my mom. I heard him say something about stalking and that ive seen it before, and the police filed a report, but he also said that he had never seen it so he wasnt sure if it was just my imagination.

Anyway on the way back home i saw it again on the side of the road. I got really scared and still am so dad is sleeping outside my room tonight and boarded up a window so id feel safe. im still scared thoughNa29R.

emergency update

the moving tree is across the street right now, but it isn't moving. now that i can get a better look at it, it isn't really a tree at all. it looks like a person. when mom and dad get home im going to ask him about it and see what he says. but that isnt for like a half an hour now.

more email pictures

Hi guys I got a lot more emails laIst night of tree photos. A lot of y.ou guys also seInt me emails asking quesMtions about computer codes or sGomething but I didnt send out any emUails until a few minRutes ago and I dont know anything ab.out computer codes haha. Must haCve been an email erOror or something.

AnyMway here are some more pictures. /

I like this pictNure because the raindraops on the camera are cool but I dont really like the tree because it is thin and bare looking. it actually looks a lot like the moving tre2es ive been seeing around town haha.

I like these trees because they have a lot of lea9ves so they look really fully and give a lot of shade. I dont know what kind they are but i wish I had them in Alabama. Someone named pyrozombie sent thRis to me and asked about the meanpicture from last post, saying something about a tree in the mi.ddle of it. Now that I look at it it does kind of look like the moving tree ive seen around town but only a little bit, it didnt have the curved branches. Speaking of the meanpicture somejone sent me a picutre that looks similar to it.

I cant tell if this picture is just black and white or if these trees are burned too but the picture is really creepy for sopme reason. I dont know why but it feels somgewhat unsettling.

Make sure you keep sending me more tree pictures

lots of pictures

Hi guys. I took a nap earlier and then checked my email again and found all of these photos! Thanks to everybody who sent them and keep sending more I love looking at trees from all over. It makes me feel like ive been to the place where the trees are and I like to go places/$.

Kari who sent this one says its called a weeping willow. I didnt think that name made sence at first because it doesnt look anything like the magical tree from Harry Potter haha. I still like this tree though because the leafs look so soft and it looks like you can duck under them and hide in there and nobody would see you.

Someone named Hanna sent me these pictures and she said she took them in a photography class last year I think she did a good job and should have gotten a A at least. There were a lot of pictures so Im only gonna put my favorite one up here. I like these trees, but the one on the right is a little creepy looking because it only has branches coming out of hte one side kinda like tentacles. and it reminds me of the weird moving tree i saw the other day. still a cool picture though!

Someone sent me this picture but it didnt have a title or anything other than the picture in the message so i dont know what kinds of trees these are or anything. These trees are all really thin which is kinda creepy, I like trees with thick trunks but its still cool how it makes the woods look really dark so they must have a lot of leafs up top.

I think whoever sent this picture because I couldnt see their name or email or anything was just being mean. All these trees are dead and it looks like they burned down and thats sad especially because fires are really scary if they get close to houses and stuff but trees shouldnt ever be burned down theys hould be allowed to grow.

Oh also i had another weird dream when i was taking a nap earlier#,. I was in a big redwood forest and then i saw this guy in the distance and it looked like @he was wearing a suit or someIthing but( he was really thin%*<. He turGned around and starAted to come closer to me and i saw that he was tall and had long arms but before he could get all the way to me i woke up. Here i drew a picture of it.

Its funny that sarah sent me pictures of redwoods because if i hadnt seen those pictures i wouldnt have known that these were redwoods in the dream haha

Keep sending me pictures i love them guys

these trees are huge!

Hi again everybody. I checked my email and I found this picture. Sarah who lives in California sent these to me and says that these are called redwood trees. THEYRE HUGE! I want to see one one day because I want to see how tall they are up close and in person. Ive never seen trees as big as these look and dad says that they are some of the largest trees in the world and are really dangerous if they fall but theyre endangered so people try to preserve them. I dont want them to go extinct so I think its good that they are protected.

I thought I saw another moving tree today too but I didnt have my phone with me or my camera so I couldnt take a picture. It looked just like last time and if it really was a moving tree it may actually have been the same one. The weird thing is that it wasnt really close to the place I saw it last time it was on the other side of the town by the Wendys.

Also its only a few days until my birthday. Im one of the youngest kids in my class because my birthday is usually just a few days after school gets out so all of my friends are already 13. It kinda bothers me though because they go and see movies without me. But Ill be 13 soon so I wont have to worry about that.

Thanks for the email Sarah everybody else send me more I really like new kinds of trees

weird tree i saw today

I havent checked my emails but Im sure you guys sent me some more so Ill check later. I just had to post this one thing I saw today.

I was out doing stuff with my dad when I saw this really weird tree that looked like it was moving, sort of like in the dream I had the other night too. I tried to get a picture of it with my phone but dad was already turning so I missed it.

When I got home I tried to draw what the trees looked out now I know Im not the best drawer but you should get a pretyt good idea of what it looked like from the picture

I could of sworn I saw it moving but dad says it was probably just the wind since its really windy here right now, but i still think it was moving. I forgot to ask him what kind of trees they were though.

Oh and don't forget to send me your cool tree pictures

I had a dream about trees last night

Hi guys. I only got a few pictures of trees since my last post but i still like them, so thanks whoever sent them.

I went walking through the woods again today and i found some cool trees. Dad says this is a blackjack oak.

I like this one because the leaves are more thick and cover the branches more than the boxelders. There are a lot of these on the other side of the woods near my house.

I had a dream about the woods last night. I was walking through them and got a little bit lost, I thought I knew the area but it changed or something, and the trees started to get thinner and look more like boxelders. Then the wood started to get darker, and I swear I saw a really thin tree moving around, until I started to cough and woke up. I went there in the woods today and knew the whole area, so it was just a weird dream.

Keep sending me emails with pics of trees guys I really like them

i like trees

Hi. My name is Jack Redding. Im 12 years old and live in Alabama. My Dad tells me I shouldnt give out my name on the internet but there are probably a lot of Jack Reddings living in Alabama and I dont think anybody would want to come after me anyway, so I think its ok. My Dad is an arbrist so he knows a lot about trees and he tells me things about them. I like trees and we live next to some woods. Sometimes I go exploring through the woods for new trees but not too deep because I dont think mom and Dad know I go in there and I dont want to get lost.

Dad says these are called boxelder trees. I dont like them because theyre too tall and skinny, they kinda creepy me out when they get in groups. What do you think?

Email me any pictures of cool trees you have
