    Trees eventually are turned into matches,
    Words live on in the spirituality of a culture.

    Willow The Wisp


    The Lakota and various other North American tribes consider particular forests or other natural landmarks to be sacred.

    Ancient holy trees remain in the English and Estonian countryside and are mentioned often in folklore and fairytales.

              Sherry Brown, Middle of a Woolly Worm is Brown, Eric Sloanes Covered Bridges and a German Sausage Dog.


              Hot Dog. Brawn. Braun? Braun Huts Colorado?
              http://www.huts.org/The_Huts/braun_friends.php

              The Alfred A. Braun Hut System is Colorado's first hut system and sits just south of Aspen in the beautiful Castle Creek Valley. The idea for a hut system in the Castle Creek Valley started with Stuart and Isabel Mace in the 1950's, who were living in Ashcroft at the time. They, with the help of volunteers, served as the huts stewards. The hut system is named after the late Fred Braun, hut manager for over twenty years and founder of Mountain Rescue Aspen. Without his many years of work and devotion, this hut system would not be possible.

              The seven huts all sit near treeline in one of the most beautiful mountain ranges Colorado has to offer, the Elk Mountains. The system provides numerous hut-to-hut opportunities and spectacular skiing and ski mountaineering.

              The Friends Hut

              Friends Hut was built in memory of 10 people from Aspen and Crested Butte, CO, who perished when two small planes collided in 1980 near East Maroon Pass. Because passengers of the planes were from both towns, the hut was designed as a link between the communities of Aspen and Crested Butte. The hut sits just south of Pearl Pass and provides a link to the Braun Hut System for hut-to-hut tours and as a destination for skiers looking to tackle the tall peaks that surrond it.
              Hut History:
              The word "hut" originally meant a small shack, often hastily built and impermanent. With the advent of modern backcountry recreation the word has taken on a new meaning, and describes everything from one-room shelters to structures that include multiple bedrooms, indoor plumbing, and comfortable heating.

              In the 1940s in Colorado, a chain of huts (used as sheep herder shelters and Forest Service guard shacks) cut through what is now the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, and other huts were built near the populous Front Range cities such as Denver.

                    Yes, it reads like he's read the poem. I thought his non use of the word Burr was interesting, Burrs are used in bridges as in Burr Truss
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burr_Truss

                    A bur (also spelled burr) is a seed or dry fruit or infructescence that has hooks or teeth. Some other forms of diaspores, such as the stems of certain species of cactus also are covered with thorns and may function as burs.

                      This is an interesting video by Allen K, he talks about Eric Sloanes books and the similarities to the poem.


                      As well as the great points raised by AllenK, i noted the Burnt Tree, Broomsticks & Split Oak underlined.

                      Add that to the Thunderstorm & Lightning the Horse from the chapter 'Looking for Lewis & Clark', and the image conjured up is of a Sacred Oak Tree hit by Lightning.

                        I think it's worth noting also on this magical theme, that Hint might be Hinterland

                        Hinterland
                        1.
                        the remote areas of a country away from the coast or the banks of major rivers.
                        2.
                        an area lying beyond what is visible or known.

                          I don't think it is beyond the realms of imagination to think that these two best friends cooked this up between them

                                The modern English word druid derives from the Latin druidēs (plural), which was considered by ancient Roman writers to come from the native Celtic Gaulish word for these figures.[8][9][10] Other Roman texts also employ the form druidae, while the same term was used by Greek ethnographers as δρυΐδης (druidēs).[11][12] Although no extant Romano-Celtic inscription is known to contain the form,[8] the word is cognate with the later insular Celtic words, Old Irish druí ‘druid, sorcerer’, Old Cornishdruw, Middle Welsh drywseer; wren’.[10] Based on all available forms, the hypothetical proto-Celtic word may then be reconstructed as *dru-wid-s (pl. *druwides) meaning "oak-knower". The two elements go back to the Proto-Indo-Europeanroots *deru-[13] and *weid- "to see".[14] The sense of "oak-knower" or "oak-seer" is supported by Pliny the Elder,[10] who in his Natural History considered the word to contain the Greek noun drýs (δρύς), "oak-tree"[15] and the Greek suffix -idēs (-ιδης).[16]Both Old Irish druí and Middle Welsh dryw could also refer to the wren

                                Druid = Oak Knower - Oak Seer

                                Perhaps best remembered as religious leaders, they were also legal authorities, adjudicators, lorekeepers, medical professionals, and political advisors.
