Twisted on the Trail


During my lifetime I've read a number of weird, twisted tales. And I've walked some trails which offered their own twist on things. This is one of them.

"Twisted Trail". What a great name for some micro brew's new fall concoction. I think we've stumbled on to something here. Cheers!

Looks like the vines are holding everything up.

The first tree almost looks like it has arms wrapped around the post. Lovely walkway.

Lois said...

I love this picture Lowell! What a great find.

Jack said...

It is a lovely canopy.

Wisteria! Only thing wrong with them is that their bloom time is so short. But considering what's left behind, who can complain? And I do like the title of "twisted tales."

Its the quirky twists in the road that make life more fun I reckon!

Those vines have been there for a very long time! I love the way they have twisted here.

Looks like it's a very mature wisteria by the thickness of the trunk, can you take another shot when it's in flower pleeeeease Lowell :)

I think it's way too late to untangle those vines.

Very beautiful.

I love those twists and turns ... Literal and figurative!

This is the perfect setting for wisteria. Left to ramble on its own, it can overtake and kill understory trees.

I bet that this is beautiful when it is full of lavender blooms!

What powerful veins! Their twining and climbing around is amazing. If a real tree is coiled, it could be murdered. BTW, twists and turns can be fun at times on a long journey. My husband likes driving on zig-zag winding road.
