    I have seen three! My avatar shows me encountering one several years ago. That is a genuine unretouched photograph! All seemed to be sleeping, and the one pictured has since disappeared. But they are out there. I encourage people to post photos if they come across any! I have more pictures... once I can figure out how to post them.

    This one was the first... and got me to start really looking!

    Several years later I ran across this one, in a remote part of the Arkansas Ozarks.

    And finally just last year, this one, right on a popular marked hiking trail.

    So clearly, some of the Entwives made it into the Ozark mountains... has anybody seen them anywhere else?

    Interesting, how do you interpret these experiences?

    There seems to be some "crossover" between Middle-earth and this place we call the "real-world". Perhaps the reason the Ents cannot find the Entwives in Middle-earth is because they came here!

    In the time since this was first posted, entwives crossed the Great Divide and wound up in the Pacific Northwest. This one was found just a couple of years ago ...
