I love finding odd shaped trees.  There’s a mystery about them that challenges the imagination even with the knowledge that there is a perfectly good explanation.

We are visiting Acadia N.P. and I found this tree with this strange root configuration.

I like this and decided to do a twofer Sunday post.  🙂

    Is that typical for the species Steve? It looks bizarre almost as if it has tentacles growing out of the trunk. Nicely observed.

    Intriguing, and also a little scary. I feel as though those ‘claws’ might come to life and entrap me. 😉

  3. That is a strange one. You’re fortunate to have found it. It’s an auspicious beginning for Acadia.

    It looks like a group of elephants standing together — or a frozen waterfall. Maybe a woodenfall?

    I love seeing trees like this, too, and this one is a wonderful old specimen. I bet you’re right about it initially growing over another tree, or a boulder.

    • There are some suggestions that Native Americans encouraged trees to take odd shapes as a sign to others. But at other times natural occurrences are said to be the cause. I have another from this same location that I will be posting at a later time with conjecture as to how that came to be. Either way it is an intriguing sight.
