Hiking Viking
As I'm getting ready at University Community Park, I heard this abrupt swooshing noise that sounded like a thousand brooms sweeping at once. I immediately ran outside to see what it was. What happened was this tree's limbs just got too heavy for its base. Imagine pulling two of your fingers in opposite directions. Do this with enough force and they'll snap. This is exactly what gravity did to these two limbs. So when you sign up for my hikes, realize the inherent risks on the trails, and off.
