Carl's Amazing Tree

Today was Wade's birthday. I took him out for breakfast this morning and then this afternoon he wanted to go to his friend Carl's house. Carl owns quite a bit of land and he had been telling us about this tree he has that you just had to see to believe. So while we were there he gave me a ride out in the woods on his 4 wheeler to see this tree.
This picture may be a little dark


A closer look at the trunk and the way it curves


Here I drew a red line to show the way the tree is growing. The line across the bottom is where the ground is. Where it begins to curve back up, it's not touching the ground. 

The coolest tree I've ever seen.

  11. I had the same thought as Beaded: it looks like the Loch Ness monster is in the woods. *laugh* Very strange indeed.
    P.S Do I need to tell you how much I absolutely adored the photos of your messy craft room?
    Didn't think so ;o)
