Twisted Trees

February 2, 2019

We are enjoying a nice quiet day in Nashville. We might have done more, but I left my phone in Seattle. 😐

Luckily we have good friends who are adept at getting into our house and then locating the wayward device. And fast tracking it to our location.

Of course, this was after the alarm went off at its early morning appointed hour. And then again, and again, …😳.

For some exercise we set off for the Mill Creek Greenway.

It was a pleasant walk through the woods on a paved path.

Our leaders

Winter season meant it was easy to see the shapes of the foliage.

Thorny shadows

This tree split, then closely aligned again, and finally split for good

The close alignment. Hard to find the gap

And this group of birds caught our eye.

Black Vultures we believe

Finally there were several trees with twisted trunks.

After examining several we formed the opinion that a vine climbing around the tree might be somehow responsible.

There appears to be something still wrapped around this one

The road less traveled.

The turnaround point of our walk.

Tomorrow we have plans to spend some time in the big city. Before the big game.
