Crater Lake – Trees 

One of the most interesting things at Crater Lake National Park were the trees near the Lodge.

As you probably know by now I love the unusual and the different, therefore, I of course, loved these trees.

The rugged shapes of the whitebark pine result from the strong wintry winds to which the trees are subjected. The dwarf, twisted form of many of the trees is referred to as Krumholtz

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen trees bend like that by the wind!  I vaguely remember also that one of the park rangers talking about the movement of the earth, but was unable to find anything about that on the internet.

Below is some of the wonderful bark I found!

 

And a baby birdy…

Come back tomorrow for more Crater Lake National Park, LAF
