This is an amazing picture! Anyone know where this is located?

My mother wrote a book about the Indian Trail Trees. If anyone would like more information on these trees please contact me at jma621@hotmail.com

The likelihood that you have an "Indian Trail Tree" on your property is highly unlikely. The Indians were forced out of this area more than 160 years ago. There are virtually no trees still alive that are that old. We have lots of trees that have grown in the "trail tree" fashion mostly from damage by storm when the tree was younger and then it just grows that way. They are still beautiful but are not "Indian Trail Trees".

Makes sense ...I wonder how to tell a real trail tree from a storm damaged tree though ?

Can you explain a trail tree, please? This sounds fascinating.
