Looks a bit like a bench in the wrong direction.
It looks like a piece of art in the woods.
So that's what "manzanita" looks like; I've read the word so many times in books and had realised from context that it was a tree, bush or shrub of some kind but had never seen a photo of one - till today.
Never seen a tree like this before, and the two tone colour makes it very appealing.
Oh, I was hoping Tex seen this...it is a wonderful find. I wish it were in my yard!
That's about the most twisted tree i've ever seen!
I love manzanita but I don't think I have every seen one this big.
