September 12th - Spiral Log

I've seen trees up high in the mountains with a spiral growth pattern and always wondered what causes that. Here's a huge log we found on the beach and it has quite a spiral pattern as well. Anyone know what causes that?

  1. I LOVE that log in Ewing cove. It's been there for a few years now.

    Interesting reading: here.

  2. I took a photo of a spiral tree near me (it didn't make it to my 365). I also wondered what caused it to grow that way. Your log makes an interesting subject.
