The Camel Tree

What is the camel tree you ask?

It's a tree that Mindy and I always see on our way to Warrenton. From a distance, it looks to us like a camel in silhouette. So we started calling it "the camel tree."

It's gotten to the point where it's become a sort of landmark for us. We actually look forward to seeing it each trip.

Do you see the "camel?" It's laying down in the shade of the big oak.

Of course, as you get closer, it starts to look a little more like a tree and a little less like a camel.

After seeing it so many times, we finally decided to pull over and take a few pictures.

And that, my friends, is the camel tree!

It looks exactly like a camel! You guys are like us - we "name" landmarks, as well, and have fun finding them on our trips....Nature gives us so many little hidden gems that it's nice to stop and appreciate them! :)

Kelly and I also spotted the camel last spring while traveling to Warrenton. We thought it was a real camel and couldn't immagine what it was doing in that area. Then we got close enough to see that it was only a tree. Glad to know that it fooled someone else too. Phyllis
