Twisted Tree Trunk

Okay, this is a two-parter.

First, do you know what this is?

Second, can you explain how it got so twisted?

Answers supplied, to the best of my ability--and I hope with help from you all--next Monday.

Thanks, Ann, for the inspiration for this quiz.


  1. I think I know - there was a vine twisted around it and then either it died or was removed.

  2. I don't know what the twisted thing is, but want to let you know that I am very exited about your new blog of photos of my home town, Austin.

  3. Shanna, thanks. I'm just so besotted with Austin that I want to share my exploration of it. Austin's special.

    About the twisted thing, I know what it is (I took the photo, after all). The mystery for me is what happened to it to produce this corkscrew shape.
