yes Virginia, that is a bicycle

We picked up a Vashon Island Guide while heading over to the island on the ferry. The first page that I turned to had a picture of this bicycle stuck in the middle of a tree. It only took seconds for us to glance at the article and put a visit to this tree on the top of our list of things to do.

Apparently, in 1953 a boy named William left his bicycle leaned up against a tree. He really didn't care for the bike very much and never returned to pick it up. Over the years, the tree grew and grew around, over and through the enter of the bike.

And now, 57 years later, there is a very tall tree with this bicycle stuck inside the trunk, about 6 or 7 feet up.

We love finding crazy, unexpected surprises like this. What is the craziest thing you've ever photographed?
