Tree roots

This tree at Lookout Point in Southern Illinois just speaks to me,
her twisted, hardened roots clinging to the side of a steep rocky wall.
I met my fear of heights there.  And I hung on, too.
The cool thing?  My son gave me his hand and we walked together.

Next week I will be back with more of my usual blog posts,
as I capture beauty and find meaning.  
Thank you for joining me during the August Break!

  1. I am always amazed at trees growing out or in-between rocks and most of their root system on top of the ground. This is an amazing shot….

  2. I adore tree roots too! I have about 500 pictures of the olive trees of somewhere in Greece because they grow all twisty like this in their trunks too. Gorgeous!
