I've shown you this tree before - its skeletal structure stands at the corner property as I take the turn towards town. It stands near the little red shack on a property that is for sale.
|The back of the red shack on the corner.|
Someone tried to burn her as she stood. I know it wasn't a lightening strike as there was an actual brush pile built at her base at one time, and they set her ablaze. But she continued to stand, singed but still whole.
Her trunk is thick - you can't really tell how large by these photos - and it twists. And her limbs are gnarled.

What does this tree have to do with a sundae? Well, her trunk, remaining wood grain, and charred bark remind me of vanilla ice cream with caramel and chocolate sauce.
