Hanging Tree in Eberwhite Woods

Here are some pix from Eberwhite Woods of a tree trunk apparently broken off halfway up, suspended from the top, and hanging vertically about 4 feet from the ground. It's a very strange sight and a little alarming. We found it while Elsie was bushwacking, following another dog's trail. The second picture is from the ground straight up. In the third picture the bare trunk at right is the tree it broke off, I think. I think it snapped at a fork about halfway up, and the top fell to the west until it snagged in vines, limbs, or the fork of another tree, then the bottom swung out and hung below the top. At least that's my theory. It'll be interesting to see how long it stays there. Elsie and I'll be checking twice weekly on our weekend walks.  

Here to go with the pix is War performing "Millionaire" and "Corns & Callouses" in a medley from the 1979 album "The Music Band".
