During our hike along Boy Scout Tree Trail I spotted what you see here. As best I can tell this is the end of a root of a tree. The root originally ran across the entire trail but was cut open and the end exposed. Since then nature has started working to consume what remains. It was so amazing to see so much life packed into such a unique area. If I hadn’t been watching where I was going I could have easily crushed this beauty. Would love to make a return trip to see if it is still there (map).
