Tree with flying buttress trunk

This tree trunk has extensions for stability and strength similar to the flying buttresses of gothic cathedrals.

Typical of the vegetation in Costa Rican cloud forests, this tree was along the trail in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park.

Such roots. Is it very old? Hundreds of years?

I read what you have written and saw your photography and it is all inspiring to me.

I am a person of ideas and the wheels begin to turn and tomorrow one of my blog posts will be published because of what I saw here first.

Thanks for visits and comments.

Neat, very exotic looking. Something I have never seen before.
