Cryptic Trees


While we were visiting home, we made a stop at Fellows Riverside Gardens, in Mill Creek Park. The Gardens (and the park in general) are one of my favorite places in Youngstown. Mill Creek is the largest metropolitan park in the United States. For more information on the park and the Gardens, visit the links below the pics.

These Weeping Beech trees are in the Gardens. The branches droop all the way to the ground, which forms a canopy around the trunk. It makes a great "secret spot." The trunks of these trees have been covered with carved grafiti. They look like a Rosetta Stone of sorts. They are really amazing to see. (In the third pic, the tree is on the left.)
