Some Fun from Yesterday

  Sure, mostly I was trucking along knocking out the miles. But I had to take a few fun pictures.

How about the tree with octopus roots? tree with roots like tentacles

This stump isn't humorous, but I continue to be fascinated by the trees that grow in a helix.

This is one of the northern maidenhair ferns just opening up, but it has sort of an insect-ish, grasping kind of look- maybe like too many praying mantises. Total contrast with the cool, soothing aspect of the fully opened ferns. northern maidenhair fern

Finally, there was this passive-agressive mushroom that couldn't decide whether to bite me or hug me. mushroom with a face

I felt pretty good today- only a little stiff. I went for my 3-mile road walk just to keep limbered up. I will admit that I slept like a log last night! Spent part of the day starting to gear up to get back in the writing groove.

That first tree looks like it's decided to pull up roots and move to a different forest.
