February 24, 2016

Like a pen and ink illustration by Philipp Grot Johann that belongs in the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales book of 1812 this remote setting looks like it just might produce some sort of wild animal or mythical creature. But all that materialized was that of bitter cold—other than the unusual scene of grotesquely twisted and gnarled tree branches in a single bluff called Crooked Bush on the Prairie landscape. This photograph was taken on private land 20 kilometres northwest of Hafford, Sask. where many such aspen trees are thriving—while other trees at nearby bluffs are normal. (For a view of the strange phenomenom when leaves are covering the branches, see PN Oct. 23, 2013). The strange growth of hundreds of branches may be rooted in genetics, possibly caused by a mutation. ©Provost News Photo.
