Mystery Of The World: Twisted Trees of Alticane, Saskatchewan

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

When I went on a field trip with my Probus Club to go see a historical farm and the Twisted Trees, I was unable to show any photos as Sparkpeople rejected them all as being too large. Now I have resized them I can share them with you. This grove of Aspen grow crooked only in this one perimeter. Normal trees are just meters away. Scientists have tested the soil and found no abnormalities. Locals claim its haunted and not to go into it at night, hearing strange sounds.

They put a pathway into the grove, asking people not to step off it and cause any damage.

It was totally strange seeing these perfectly healthy trees so warped:

I spent as much time as the group would allow in there:

So bizarre, but so cool to see:

So many here:

Some day I would love to go back at night and see if it feels strange..

One last one:

A unisex outhouse:

Saying goodbye to the strange place:

How well do you know your state or province? Do you have mysterious wonders lurking for you to explore? I will bet you do. Explore and learn. Life is an adventure, don't waste it and have later regrets of could have, should have..
Enjoy your evening!

    Fabulous photos--these are wonderful examples of nature doing her job--I am wondering why the trees are like that, what purpose caused nature to do so...
I would think some interesting movie scenes could be shot there, if they didn't do any damage in the process.
Thanks for sharing these!!
Peace and hugs,

    emoticon I love trees like that. That is weird that they are only in a certain section among normal looking trees! Have seen similar ones in different places, and they are usually by the ocean, where I think the winds twist them up like that. We saw one Friday that looked like big birds sitting on top of the tree-bare curvy branches. Got photos of it, will post them later. emoticon

    How odd and lovely! I think they're dancing. Or maybe they're Ents that are just resting a spell before continuing on to looking for their wives. Thanks for sharing!

    It does make you wonder how those trees got so warped. There are so many mysteries in nature! You want to go there at night? Maybe you could solve the mystery of the warped trees. LOL!
