Walking tree

Trees that drop roots into the ground are often called walking trees.  The roots seem to progress primarily in one direction so that the tree "walks" along in that direction.

This tree is in the gardens  in the courtyard of the Capitan Suizo Resort in Tamarindo.  I took the photo from the lobby, looking down into the gardens, which explains the perspective of looking down onto the tree.

This week we are showing photos of the architecture of Grenada, Nicaragua on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

When I saw these trees when I was in Costa Rica, I thought it looked like small animals could get trapped inside that tangle of roots and not be able to get out.

These trees are amazing! I think I've only seen them in Costa Rica.

Very interesting concept; nature is full of wonders.

Mangroves do something like this, I think.
