THE GREAT HOLE

Mrs. Trowbridge mentioned the great hole several times in her writings; the reason being that the husband of one of her dear friends was severely injured in a fall during an exploration of the hole. A rescue was attempted, but he expired.

Through the course of my numerous treks into Wild Rose Creek, I was never able to find the fabled hole that she wrote about. To my knowledge Mrs. T never entered the hole, so she must have created this painting from descriptions combined with her brilliant imagination.

An adventure of the best kind... not knowing what the outcome will be. This goes well with both subeterranean and expired. I see that creature about to pounce but I am sure the shrews will escape, outwit, or outsmart any horrors that lurk within the great hole.
