We actually saw two such "right angle" trees on the way up West Kill Mt. in the Adirondacks yesterday (Saturday). One was quite small (c. 2-3 inches in diameter). It looked as though it had been broken off and then healed itself. Also saw one which was much larger (c. 1 ft. in diameter).

I'm not sure if Joanne took a picture of those two or not, but maybe she has one...

It's amazing what nature's creations will do to survive...

So many trees fall over in storms,damaging winds and natural causes.I remember when I hiked a trail as a kid and saw a tree stump covered in moss[thought it was a rock] tipped in a way so you could only see the stump.I will try to go back and see it.Then send a pic. Looncry

This Little tree is (was?) somehow holding up the large tree all by itself







Then there's the crazy Bleached Trees on Baxter

Not "crazy" like the trees shown above, but interesting nonetheless...

It probably depends upon when this happened...

Who needs dirt



A forest in the middle of a lake?




I hope they don't want their chain back



Apparently these wasp for some reason stung this tree but couldn't get their stingers out and then later died still stuck like that.


And where would we be without the DEC

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?

This is when I climbed Ampersand October 2008.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_B2rZXQrmNo...ondacks046.jpg

The one behind that tree is my niece. She was killed this past July when a wrong way driver hit her on Rte. 481N. This past September 2009 we did a memorial for her back at Ampersand. This mountain holds a lot of meaning to me as it was her first time climbing and she was excited, anticipating doing another one this past Autumn.

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.
