Slightly Odd


One last post from my trip to Cumberland Falls.  I can't resist sharing some of the oddities I found while exploring.  First up - spider webs that appear to be holding up the branches.



When I was a kid I was convinced a small mountain near our house was actual an entire dinosaur skeleton. I was sure the largest hill was the body, the smaller one which was connected with a ridge was his head and a small mound at the other side was the leg joint.  With that kind of imagination I'm sure you can see why I thought the rock in the photo above looked like a snake's head.



Does anyone know what could cause this strange growth on a tree trunk?


And my favorite - this cool root that looks just like an old man's hand.

I'm feeling the need for a little more Marc Broussard in my world - his soulful, rootsy music makes me happy.

I still think that hill is a dinosaur!! I think that last picture looks more like a baby covered in mud than a hand!

Those are funny!! I liked the snake head, I thought it looked an alligator before I read you thought it looked like a snake. The growth on that tree really creeps me out!!
