My friend just got back from her short weekend trip from Seattle and shared a wonderful photograph of a bike that got eaten by a tree, here it is:
This photo was taken on Vashion Island (close to Seattle, WA). I told her what an amazing discover and how it the first place it got to be like that.
She said that people of that area told her that it’s been like this for about 30 some years. well I discover a little say about this tree:
On Vashon Island (near Seattle, Washington), a tree grows carrying a rather unusual passenger – an old bike. Apparently some kid chained a bike to the tree decades ago and never picked it up, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike.
The tree and island gained some level of notoriety when Berkeley Breathed, creator of Bloom County, wrote a children’s book inspired by the bicycle eating tree entitled Red Ranger Came Calling.
