Tree-root Bridge

One of the best sights from yesterday deserved its own post.

As we were scrambling along the stream on our way to our next sampling site, I came around a corner and saw what looked like a bridge ahead. I was surprised to see a path so far off from where we had expected one… but it wasn’t actually a path at all. It was a huge tree root that sometime in the decades past had reached across the ravine and grown itself supports, anchoring the tree and creating a natural barrier and bridge across the stream.

The forest here is like nothing I’ve ever seen. Read my previous post for more musings on time.

    I think you can officially take the ‘?’ off the 2nd line of your blog title since you most definitely have nice pictures (and writing) about science things. Period.
