    Default Real Tree?

    I was thinking... what if a token were hidden in a tree that looks like Yorah? I was thinking if we find the right tree, it will look like his drawing.

    Yorah is the oldest tree in the forest so I looked up some stuff on Google about old trees in the US. Most of the old trees that I found don't look anything like Yorah. I did find one example that looks kind of similar, but it wasn't a spot on match. It is on an Indian Reservation and you need an appointment to go there, so is that considered private property?

    There must be a tree out there with a big knothole and a token inside.

    "Wye oak"... "Y oak"? Yorah Oak?

    Um.....Doesn't Yorah have faces and stuff? I've never seen a tree with a face. Let alone one that talks. Take away the face and you have a tree that looks like every other tree.

    Yes, but the real question is which ones talk...?

    Or more importantly... how?

    Doesn't this tree look an awful lot like Yorah?

    http://championtrees.org/champions/ashgreen.htm

    It is a green ash, not an oak. It's at Elk Lake in Michigan.

    Default Frank Lloyd Wright

    Architectural guru Frank Lloyd Wright built wonderful, interesting treehouses. In the text in the chapter about Yorah, it says she speaks "frank". The description of the treehouse just reminded me of Mr. Wright's architectural designs, which are respected and promoted by many of our museums.
