I love this week’s Daily Post photo challenge: Twisted.
Aren’t these twisted tree roots cool? This is by Devil’s Postpile in the High Sierras near Mammoth, California.
While my son Mike and daughter Amy hiked up the trail to check out the top of the Devil’s Postpile, George and I sat on a fallen log near the trail and enjoyed the chipmunks and peaceful calm of the forest.
These tree roots caught my eye. I like survival shows like Naked and Afraid, so when I’m in a wilderness environment, I always wonder if I could survive if I was stuck there for a while.
My imagination had a field day planning how to build a shelter by covering the tree roots with branches and leaves. The closer to the ground, the better, to keep warm and snug. This huge trunk would make me feel safe and secure if I huddled up in its nook. I even figured it offered enough space for a few people to join me.
This was a beautiful spot to meditate on the wonders of nature and ponder my survival skills!
What are your thoughts? Do you like survival shows? Do you like to hike on wilderness paths? Do you appreciate nature’s artwork? I’d love to hear from you!
