September 16th 2006 marked the end of an era for the Stable Road community, when at 11:45 Rope Tree fell to its death.
Rope Tree has been a landmark at Camp One for as long as anyone can remember, sitting at the waters edge and providing the perfect platform for many a photoshoot. The rope swing has been loved by kids aged 3-90, residents and visitors alike.
Summer 2006 has seen the highest levels of beach erosion at Camp One in a decade. Rope Tree was not the first to fall. It will probably not be the last. One thing is for sure; it will be the most missed.
Rope Tree served its final photoshoot duty on September 11th 2006 to Matt and Kevin Pritchard. We captured all the action here on mauiwindcam.
We also captured Rope Trees final moments. The view from mauiwindcam will never be the same. Farewell old friend.
