Snow Curved Trees

When the trees in the mountains begin to grow, the winter snow deforms them downward. As the continue growing they curve upward to compensate for the pressure of the snow. This is one way you can always tell which direction is down when you are hiking in the mountains. These trees are growing on the trail to Stewart Falls in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah.
