It’s Halloween next week: black cats, pumpkins, and scary trees. Well, that’s all I got, scary trees. I have run across some good ones in my travels, so in honor of Halloween, here are my favorites.
This one, from Kalaloch in Washington, looks like a deformed giant carrying the weight of the world, some with his arms and some pushed ahead of his face. Can you see it now?
People try to make trees in their yard look scary for the holiday. This tree at Schafer State Park in Washington has that look nailed, year round.
These moss-covered trees, at South Beach State Park in Oregon, just creeped me out at twilight. I expected either a bear or BigFoot to come jumping out at me.
This wind-twisted tree and its siblings at MacKerricher State Park in California cast cool shadows in sunlight and look positively creepy in rainy weather.
Finally, these tree roots at Kanaskat-Palmer State Park in Washington look like the toes of some kind of bark-covered monster.
