Trees Grow Differently in Brazil

Even though we were on the edge of rain forest territory we did not actually go into rain forest area but with images like this one, I did feel that it was close at hand.

I saw this tree with its roots stretching down to the earth below on our first morning in Rio.

It was within walking distance of where we were staying and I was able to return and take a photo of it on another day.

When we went to Sugar Loaf Mountain, we walked along the beach and I saw a similar sight with this tree sending its roots down over the side of a wall and into the sand below.

Tree trunks certainly grow differently in Brazil.
