Dick the Tree

No visit to the cabin would be complete without visiting with Dick the Tree.
From the side Dick looks like any other ordinary aspen tree standing tall and proud in the forest.




But seen from the front it’s plain to see that Dick is not an ordinary tree. We really don’t know just how he came to be.




We have never seen a tree before that has grown quite like this. Dick has two separate trees coming up from the ground which meet to form one tree trunk. Years ago he had a stick that protruded from the spot where the two trunks come together, hence his name. Sadly, over the years that stick wore down and it is now completely gone.

Here he is from behind. To us he looks like some old cowboy that has been riding too long in the saddle.





It used to be easier to take a good photo of Dick before the little pine tree started to grow right in front of him.

Of course, we named it Jane. What else?
