About 50 feet away from where we are camped.
Indians would bend over a sapling to mark a trail as to the direction of travel, or a source of water, good place to camp or even to cross a stream among many other pieces of information. I have seen a lot of trees growing in strange ways but never knew until now that some of them may have been Indian Marker Trees.
I took the photo in a way that what is written could be better read.
A lot of misshapen trees could be by any number of means: wind blown over, lightening strikes, another tree falling on it when it was just a sapling. By looking at images on the web though I now know what to look for in the future when it comes to Indian trail marking.
I thought this really special to be camping where Comanche Indians once did.
