The Aspen Spoon

During yesterday's hike in the Golden Gate Canyon State Park, my younger son departed the trail to scavenge a dead aspen branch about six feet long.  He broke off chunks of it until he was left with a short, twisted fragment, which he stowed in his pack.  It seemed like an odd souvenir to me.

Last night, after whittling late into the evening, my son produced a hand-made spoon.  It is a strange, medieval-looking spoon, a spoon with an elbow.

The aspen spoon was tested on a bowl of oatmeal this morning and performed admirably.
