The exposed roots of this tree along the 1930’s paved N. Spring Street are so unusual. No other tree in this wooded area has roots growing out of the ground like this.
Everyone who frequents the Fox River Trail knows this paved area as their “Rocky moment”. The wooded path has an almost obscured inlet with an uneven, historic brick drive that goes straight up. Whew! I’m tired even now of walking my bike up that hill.
The juxtaposition of the tree roots and brick drive through the dappled sunlight makes quite the dramatic sight.
