Live oaks on a Historical Mound near Crystal River, Florida.
Many times in our travels we visit parks that have an abundance of trees. Florida has many trees the most popular and most widely seen are the Live Oaks, Pine and Palm. I enjoy them all, but dislike parking under the pines. I am not sure if they drop sap all year-round or just when I park under them.
I am amazed at trees that seem to cling to life by sending their roots over and around rocks.
Hiking the AT, we have noticed trees cracking rocks as they grew, but knowing full well the rock would be there years after the tree is dead and gone, but the tree will have left it mark that will last forever.
I do not know how I missed the Live Oak tree. I guess I just never thought of them as I visited Florida, but now having lived here off and on, I cannot help but notice them. Above is a young ‘Hammock’ of live oaks. Below a little older, they amaze me at the angles and bends they take. They are entertaining.
Above is the largest Live oak in Lake County Florida, I believe.
This is the Royal palm, it is majestic and lines many streets in Florida.

The above are entertaining trees from NY’s Catskills.

And like ‘Louis’, Sherry has always wanted to drive thru a tree.
Rocks are very entertaining:

I just had my mind on Rocks and Trees.
Thanks for stopping by the log.
