Ent sighting

While backpacking in the wild, untamed regions of Sierra Nevada mountains, I came upon a rare treat. An ent.

With all the hoopla about Sasquatches (bigfoots), the Lock Ness Monster (Nessie), and Yeti's (abominable snowmen), these peaceful, intelligent trees are often overlooked in the media.

Though shy, this ent allowed us to photograph him. And since this is a family friendly site, I appropriately chose to post a picture of only his backside.

Hey gzusfreek,
Well...it's fun to pretend :)

No, really, I can see it! I wish I'd have found him. I did see big foot once ( I think it was on the history channel )
So sorry, but I awarded you an Honest Scrap Award! Have you seen the mess over at gzusfreek.blogspot.com?
:-)

I'm delighted to have been part of an entire family's laughter!!

Hi Sailor Matt,
I need to go backpacking again...I'm already missing my Ent friends.

Hi Andra :)
Haha, yes. His backside is hard to miss.

Cool blog! I love writing, and I need ALL the help I can get on my blog. I know that you've visited it before, but I need all the support that I can get. It's about my book series about dragons (with metaphorical emphasis on religion), and I need to get some feedback from other writer's and the like. It's hopefully going to get published soon (depending on when I finish writing it). It has excerpts from the first book, and bits and pieces of the other books, as well. Tarterrior.blogspot.com

Hi Adam,
I'll be sure to stop by when I have the chance. And thanks for stopping by mine :)
Just keep writing, and enjoy it! God's given us that creative gene for a reason.
