Together Forever

Trees and Cables - Topaz Textures - Oily Hands

Umpteen years ago, who knows how many, somebody tied these two trees together at two levels with a very stout and thick cable. Now the trees have grown and the cable is part of the tree. Who knows why? Turkey Mountain is now a popular park in Tulsa but formally it had lots of oil wells, and hardscrabble rocky farms, and by legend alcohol stills. Many relics of its past are still on the mountain, foundations for oil well pump jacks, farmhouse cisterns and foundations, old flow lines and such.

I just love finding clues to its past and wondering what in the world happened.

    That’s my idea perfect place to hike. (Run if it’s you, amble if it were me)…. but the idea that you might come across something wonderful to contemplate .. I love this. I do wonder why and I know you aren’t supposed to do that to trees and all that, but back in the day there must have been a reason. And its neat how the trees adapted and survived.
