Yes it was actually.

Adding to the craziness, is this sign is barely visible from the road and about a mile away from Crane Pond.

I bet most people on the way to Crane Pond miss it and nobody would be walking in the wood there,

Not to mention, even if you did see it from the road, who is going to stop there, a mile or more away from any body of water, to read the details of the Live Bait Ban.

*****
This was taken last October, it's the result of a large Beaver dam. The Beaver apparently decided to spare one tree that was in the middle of his pond.



I Hope you had a Merry Christmas Mr. Beaver

I like the new photo you have here....
Let me guess again...
Is that one taken from just off of the Pillsbury Lake/Cedar Lakes trail?

Nope. It's the North Fork Boquet River just off the path to East Dix. This is just past the Shoebox swimming hole/flumes.

****
And more craziness, I guess this counts. When searching my photos yesterday I noticed this (I didn't notice it before) up in the trees, the photo was taken on a very foggy day recently on South Boquet Mountain where I was just snapping pictures of the woods.



Actual photo size of the thing



and if you want the Full Size unaltered Photo here

At first I thought it was just snow on the lens somehow, but looking at it you as you can see it's between branches where as if it were snow on the lens it would be in the foreground only.

And if it's a snowball, I don't know how it's being held up by the tree branch(s) like that.

1894 - May I ask? Why do you use an IP identifier in your signature? Does it have some sort of significance?

I ask because I've only seen something like that on websites, for the benefit of the website owner, so to speak.

btw - nice photos.

Gentle reminder to folks that they are not as anonymous as they think on the inner tubes
The address to get one similar is on it.

I've seen a couple trees that did a complete 360 on the way up. Weird to see a tree with a loop in it. I have a picture of one of them somewhere (it's by Siamese Ponds) but I can't find it now.

This....suggestive-looking tree... has since been removed from the trail up to Good Luck Cliffs. I guess they're trying to keep it PG.

Tick,
What trail is that log with the 6/12?
I know I've seen that before, just can't remember where.

I was on the Stewart and Indian Lakes trail yesterday. Not much snow, but nice and quiet in there. Snapped a photo of this tree. Not the craziest I've seen, but fun nonetheless.

On the trail around Putts Pond. I just happened to stop and look up and I thought of this thread. I noticed a few others along the way but my camera battery died shortly after this one.
