1. The Crooked Bush // Hafford

The Crooked Bush is located on private land, but is open to the public to explore this natural mystery. It's essentially a grove of Aspen trees that have grown, well, crooked. It's a pretty quiet spot, and there's a picnic bench if you want a place to have lunch. Also, the Crooked Bush is sooooo Instagrammable.
