Massive Bent Tree on the Trail of Trees!

A week ago this past Friday, Rick and I were riding along Highway 56 approaching the bridge across Piney Creek when he exclaimed, "There's a thong tree!" And he was right!
Folks, we've driven this road looking for bent trees many times and Rick spots one only 50 feet off the highway in the exact spot we should expect to find one!
This amazing tree grows along a hollow that appears might have been the route of an early road fording the creek.
 The Highway 56 corridor is a known route of  those traveling the Trail of Tears through Izard County
