I've been up near Vancouver Island the past few days just rambling around the woods and while hiking down this little two foot wide trail on the edge of a cliff, I noticed these weird marks on a tree that kind of looked like claw marks..



The black stuff is some kind of ash someone has rubbed across the marks. I looked around the area and there was no place to make a fire, it's about a 60-80 foot vertical drop to the rocks and the ocean on the other side of the tree.

So, any ideas? Hatchet marks? Bigfoot trimming his nails on a tree? Near this tree was another one that looked like something had been dragging it's claws up and down it from the bottom of the tree to about 6 feet up the trunk. And just about 10 feet from that is a place under a huge log where it looks like something big has been bedding down.

Hatchet? Bear? Bigfoot? Wild man hippie that's gone feral? I'm open to whatever possibilities. I don't have any service up here but there's a gas station that has WiFi I can hike to so I'll try to check back in.

Just something I thought was weird.

Looks like someone marked that location for some reason. Maybe they used a chunk of burnt out campfire wood to do that. Maybe there is something there that they wanted to find again, maybe they found something with a metal detector. Maybe that is where they buried something, is there something that looks like a headstone there, possibly for a buried pet?

Looks to me like someone was attempting to cut the tree down and stopped, or someone was just hacking at it, fooling around. The "black ash" is more than likely a mildew or mold.

Hatchet marks were the first thing I thought of, besides Bigfoot lol.

I didn't think about something maybe being buried nearby, but that might be the case. There wasn't anything that looked like a headstone, it seems like it'd be hard to bury anything around there due to the terrain.

machete marks and black fungus, maybe.

OK, most likely explanation for ATS: ETIs marking their roaming territory or worst situation, their claim to the whole earth.

That was a thought as well, someone just standing there bored notching on a tree with an ax.

Just don't want to get kidnapped by Bigfoot while I'm up here.

To me it looks like rope scars on the bark. At some point someone tied a cable or a rope around the tree, rappelled downwards and the rope, or cable or parts of it remained on the tree. The remains of that cable were then incorporated into the tree.

I've seen marks like this on a few trees, though most were always deeper.

Ahh, that does make sense. I didn't think about that.

Hope your not hiking in a fluffy brown onesie whilst wearing a life like bug eye grey mask? If you are ready your camera, you may get photo of the year, or freakishly lucky. Take me to your tag team coach.

Lucky you. Vancouver island is such a beautiful place, I used to go there all the time as a kid.

Your on a cliff ? .... A rocky cliff ??? ....most likely someone rock climbing and tired off in the tree . Maybe emergency response team training there . ...otherwise my only other guess would be a moose rutting his antlers on the tree, and mold growing on top of marks .

Big area for TRUFFLES ?

The ash marks the Spot?
Truffles are big money in the north west. Kind of like Moonshiners in the south east of the U.S.
"Truffle hunting in the Pacific Northwest is a challenging outdoor adventure. Learn how to find them while having respect for their habitat."~ per article

EDIT: I can see the Roping Tie off now.

You beat me to it. I've had enough trees cut down here in the Pacific NW to immediately recognize that as the result of someone harvesting an edible fungus. I believe that particular one is prized for its naturopathic uses.

But that's exactly what it is...

The best way to see Vancouver Island is from the deck of a sailboat making way through the Inside Passage.

Don't tell anyone, but that is just about the most beautiful trip you will ever take.

This sailor has only done it twice (you need a couple weeks), but can't wait to do it again -- maybe Summer 2018.

Right on. That may be what it is. Thanks to BigBurgh too for the links, I don't really know anything about truffles or truffle hunting.

Maybe I should keep my eye out for them today..
