Grampt1 has been trying to make a picture-post forever and a day and this was going to be the great unveiling.  A good one it would have been too but optimization got in the way.  He'll make it, one day.  I know. :)

Here's Gramp's Proboscis Tree. :D

Here are some photo's of Chapel rock at Pictured Rocks National Park in Munising, MI.

That's a gorgeous Hemlock that sit's a top what is known as Chapel Rock. You can see the limbs that are just over my shoulder coming back to the main ledge. That's me in the middle, my son Jessee and brother-in-law Don


This is from the underside looking up at the limbs reaching out back to the main ledge. At one time I remember seeing this limb completely covered quit a few years ago,  :( no photo's of that


This is the base on which the hemlock is growing.


The entire tree and base structure.

Gramps told me that the basket on the two-wheeled, geriatric-ATV is for adult beverages.  Nothing like a party in the woods. :)

I came across this picture a few weeks ago. I belive it is the same place as in  the picture hydeoutman posted, only this is from 1920 or 1921.



I'd like to hear what you all think.

In the spirit off Halloween, I thought I would post a picture of this tree that I hated to pass in the dark with the quad while Bear hunting. I always thought it was about to grab me. I remember years ago when it had a sign on it, it was not near as spooky.

Cant seem to get the picture to come up from my gallery.  See the saddle one I have there.  I am always intrigued when I find them like that.

White Oak Tree. This white oak tree of unusal form was found in a storm damaged timber area. It is growing out of a large rock pile. One can only imagine the hand picked rock pile created by clearing farm land now well overgrown with timber. 





Front side of characteristic white oak tree growing in rock pile; Maturen timber harvest; 8/08





Back side of characteristic white oak tree growing in rock pile; Maturen timber harvest; 5/08

That type of germination and growth of yellow birch is quite unique as far as temperate hardwood go. You also get them on mossy covered boulders where the roots migrate through the moss to reach the main soil base. Conditions have to be just right though so the roots don't die in the dry times. I think the roots grow quite rapidly in yellow birch.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Y'all need to give your trees some vitamins.  They sure are pale.  :-\   Might help that case of rickets too.  :D

Wind Shaped Red Pine. Constant exposure to the winds along the Straits of Mackinaw shapes these shoreline trees. Wilderness State Park, 9/08.
