Have You Hugged a Tree Today?

Looking up from my tree hugging.

Lying on the ground, looking up.

Appreciating... Yes, I am a tree worshipper, too.

During our hike at Hi Tor State Park today, we walked near a huge tree limb that was dangling from the much smaller limb of another tree. I couldn't get a good shot of it, but at one end it was inches off the ground, and when you looked up, it was hooked at the other end on this pathetically small, weak looking nub of a limb. Of course you're afraid to touch something like this-- (idiots have done it in the past and sent things crashing down) and it pays to be observant when it comes to trees. (the leaning limb in the background was also in a precarious position.)
