That is some old tree. I bet it's seen lots of storms. Even has that gigantic burl on it. I saw a young man who carves beautiful bowls out of those burls at the County Fair this year. A great example of making something beautiful out of something so distorted. This is a wonderful photo.

Looks like a great tree to climb, comfy to lie on and read a book perhaps... love trees.

What a wonderful old tree!

What a show off, just look at how that tree is proudly holding his great arms out to greet the day!

If I turned this upside-down, I think I'd see a person with an extra arm--a beautiful survivor.
