Druid Island Grove

About a year ago, I created a sort of fantasy Druid Grove on Second Life. [To get to the grove, open your Second Life program and use this link. Click the "Teleport" button and it will link to your SL program and begin the teleportation process.] It was my first real "project" on there and I had a lot of fun with it. It's a small grove in a clearing in the middle of what is meant to look like an extinct volcano. I didn't really have any plans for this spot other than as a place to go to practice my LSL (Linden Scripting Language) skills and as a home base for my explorations in SL, so I wouldn't say it is finished yet by any means, although it is usable as a meeting spot for friends. This is an overview of the island grove area from an overhead "flying" position.

Here is a picture of the beach landing area, where I generally will walk into the grove rather than fly and drop in from above.

Here is a picture of the oak tree, twined with ivy, that sits at the highest point of the crater rim, and from which point two paths into the crater diverge and enter the clearing.

Here is a picture of the trailhead on the right side of the oak tree. Until you get to this point, you can't really see the grove area.

Here is a picture of the left side trailhead.
