Now, just for some background, this post is all about trees. Specifically trees in Oregon and how creepy they are. Like many of you, I grew up with trees. They had green leaves/needles and brown trunks. They were also not very memorable. Oregon trees are different. The first sign I had that there was something wrong with the trees in Oregon was this:
|What is this mysterious rectangular blob in the distance?|
|Creepy, endless death trees. Also, a power pole, which is another post coming.|
A slight detour in the Colombia River Gorge and suddenly we were surrounded by trees. But not ordinary trees. Witchy trees. Seriously. There was even this creepy fence built from crooked metal poles and half-eroded mossy logs.
|The Hansel and Gretel witch was just around the corner.|
|Fluffy trees. FLUFFY TREES. Enough said.|
|Difficult to see, but these trees are also freakish and fluffy.|
|Backyard tree: broken limbs angling towards the house to eat us.|
|Yes, that green thing is part of a tree, also angling downward to maim.|
|Don't even ask me what's up with this tree. It's not normal.|
|Yes, that green, weepy thing is a tree. There was "moss" everywhere.|
|Normal leaves, sparkling like gold. But they are not gold.|
|Everything seems normal with the flash on, but . . .|
|THIS TREE WILL EAT YOUR SOUL.|
* By the way, I'm not crazy. The trees were weird and fun and I thought I'd share. Hopefully they'll inspire you somehow. But please don't start thinking I'm paranoid on trees like some people are on aliens or the government.
