Too bad its too far away, otherwise we could all go and throw rocks at it and see if someone pops their head out
Yeah, and find out it's a homeland security outpost or some hunters blind & they pop back with a bang of their own.

Hehe. It does looks intresting. Nature does odd things to old trees. Go back out there, and get right up to the tree. Get some pics while you are
Well, I did go back in the area in the early spring of 2007 (the pics are from 06) & I could not locate the object in question, either I didn't look
in the right place, or it has changed due to last winters storms, some kind of intervention or possibly it is just blocked by other trees. If indeed
it is a tree & has completely fallen it would be nice to get a closeup of what's left. Of course if it's some kind of nest it's occupant may have
migrated or moved somewhere else.
No doubt snow has begun to fall in the area, so I might have to wait until next spring unless I acquire a snowmobile this winter - just too far too
walk in the snow. However I will return to the area again, because it is near one of my favorite hikes & I will update this thread when that
I could get closer to the base if I bring a climbing rope or maybe just get a better camera. I went down the slope about 35 feet and turned back
because it was too unstable (lots of loose rocks fist to basketball size & movement underfoot) or maybe I was just too lazy or spooked at the time to
take the risks. That camera I used was an old 2 mega pixel camera with only 3x zoom, so I'll get a six MP or better before my next visit.
Thanks everyone for your ideas & opinions on this matter.
I've added the second similar object to the album, so now there are three pictures & three zoomed available. In the opening post I referred to the
first object as female because it had a sort of headdress, in contrast I referred to this one as male cause it looks simpler or more rectangular. I'm
referring to the tree on the right of the closeup. The adjacent treetop (lower branch?) or other object on the left almost appears the same as the
first object (I'm a little confused it's been awhile since the pic) but a side view or different light. The picture was taken from the same ridge so
it couldn't be a side view of the original unless the tree moved.
companion object (one or two similar treetops)
adjacent or within a couple trees of original object
companion object 2 zoomed
I would like to hear from a tree expert or tree farmer even. My best logical guess is that a cold snap in the area killed several tree tops adjacent
or close together and some kind of parasite passed by wind or animals started growing on the them about the same time. Either that or some
inter-dimensional shape shifting alien parasite is taking over our forest.
