I come across this Dali-esque scene of a shattered dead tree draped across the rock. Following the grain of the wood, in a slight spiral, it has delaminated, and its weight has bent it over the rock face.
Here is a naturally occurring “barley twist.” A vine, choking a tree further up, being choked by a smaller vine.
Is this a branch or a vine, looking as if it is coming right through the tree, being in turn crushed and choked by the tree growing back around it?
On this side of the road, there are a lot of white birch trees.
