Weird and old trees (312)

I went for a walk in the woods around Wolfheze with my oldest brother this morning. 8,5km to catch up in perfect autumn weather conditions: no wind, no clouds, 5-11°C.

We came across this weirdly shaped tree.

And later we marvelled at the “thousand year old pine tree” which in fact was diagnosed as being about 400 years old when it fell during a storm in 2006. It is now food for other forest foliage.
