Teepee Town

Our house in Halifax backs onto a wooded area near Long Lake Provincial Park and it's where "Teepee Town" is located. Teepee Town was built 2 years ago by my kids and a few of their friends. It's a busy town. It's constantly is going through upgrades, demolitions and additions.

Fallen trees from Hurricane Juan are perfect for building teepees and shelters. The currency there is tree bark and moss. Two slices of bark and a handful of moss will get you a ground floor condominium and a skylight.

There is even a mayor (my son, who appointed himself). Council meets infrequently and a couple times they've come close to a mutiny.
