Ribbon Tree

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Although oak is the predominate tree growing in these woods, other interesting species can also be found. This is the red barked madrone tree. A number of these trees exhibit fascinating growth patterns. Some trees have a spiral pattern as if some giant had grabbed the top and twisted. This one looks like a reddish brown ribbon which has been twisted several times.
