That is a burl.


A burl results from a tree undergoing some form of stress. It may be caused by an injury, virus or fungus.

The above and more info can be found on this wikipedia page.

Thanks for the pictures Jack. After us doing the CDR last year I kinda forgot how much fun the TWVT trip was. I know several life-long friendships came out of that trip.

Thanks for the info... I always thought it was a type of tree! not a deformity.

You know I'm gonna have to call you the Encyclopedia WayneOgraphica!

Jack, I believe that is Butt Mountain but I'm not sure. It's where I discovered my fork seal was leaking on our TWVT ride. We will be there again two Wednesdays from now.

Excellent!!

I bought a new camera just for the occasion.
for the first time in my life, I bought an extended warranty. 2 years parts and labor... Of course, it won't last a day beyond 731 days
Still orders of magnitude better than its predecessors.

(holy fuck I just spelled predecessors correctly)

Surprised you didn't go for one of the armored cameras http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/coolpix/aw/aw110/
Been thinking about this one myself or the Panasonic version.

As I buy replacement cameras, I keep upgrading the optics/lenses.
My interest in better images has outweighed the indestructo cameras.
Though... I will have one as my next backup.
the 810 has 26x optical zoom.
Next step is a real slr..... yikes..... too pricy for how tough I am on cameras...

It wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. I think relaxing and taking our time made it a lot easier than it could have been.

Oh to live on Butt Mountain, with the barkers and the color balloons. Don't know where I'm going with this.

You have to be gentle the first time you climb Butt Mt.
