Loop-de-loop lodgepole: Thursday Tree Love

Loop-de-loop lodgepole

I saw this loop-de-loop lodgepole pine growing alongside Firehole Lake Drive in Yellowstone National Park. Everyone drove right past it but I had to stop and take its picture. I wondered what stopped it from going straight up. It figured out how to grow around obstacles and keep going in the right direction. A lesson for us all.

  1. Its wonderful that you spotted this tree! Indeed it has figured out that obstacles have to be overcome!! I have seen a variety of Palm that had a similar curved trunk.. sadly it was cut down as part of road works.
