We went for a long hike into the woods today. I wish I had stepped back further to get this picture, but the thing on the right that looks like a wall is the bottom of an utterly enormous root ball attached to a tree that had fallen. The tree was a pine that had to be over 100 feet tall. The part of the shallow root system on the right side of the pic is about 10 feet tall. The tree looked like it had been down for years, and there were several oaks and pines right next to it that had also fallen. I wonder what happened? Also, the way the trees fell and leaned on one another created this amazing dome about 20 feet across and 10 feet high. It felt like a house in the middle of the woods, and I was too awestruck to take pics, dang it. [attachment file="155949"]
