I ran across this post
called the "10 Strangest Trees on Earth". These trees look like they came straight out of James Cameron's Avatar
or some other sci-fi movie, but they can be found right here on our beautiful planet.
Check out some of our favorites:

Can't you just picture the Na'vi living in the first one?
I know I've seen some crazy trees on my travels. The 8 year old in me wanted to climb them, of course, and I'm pretty sure I've indulged my inner 8 year old at least once. Have you ever seen any of these trees, or ones like them, in your travels?
