WORD PRESS WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: ENDURANCE

Share a photo of what endurance means to you — maybe it’s your beat-up, well-traveled running shoes, the oldest structure in your town, the vista you earned climbing that mountain, a photo of your wedding ring, or your dog, tongue lolling, running full-out.  

For more information go here!


Endurance
At the very top of Art Hill in Forest Park there appears to be what I consider to be a living example of ENDURANCE.  To maintain its position at the top of the hill, it looks like this tall pine tree has grown an extra hand at its base to actually grip the soil that holds it there. In other words, a tree shouting I WILL SURVIVE in spite of being located in the middle of tornado alley!

  1. The roots look like dinosaur feet.

    • Since this section of the park was the location of the World Fair of 1904 and contained all the buildings and villages constructed for the fair, the oldest any tree growing here can only be 110 years. That’s far too young to attract dinosaur spirits. However, aboriginal tribes from the Pacific Islands, South America and Africa, many of whom believed trees were inhabited by human spirits, also were located in this area. So I subscribe to the giant tree spirits theory.
