Tenacity on display as trees find ways to thrive in the rugged Elora gorge.

These roots are possibly 'sowing the seeds' of their own downfall here.:) Excellent detail shot

Wow, this is awesome! The roots of this oldtimer seem to strangle the rocks - if that's possible at all.
I often wonder how trees manage to grow or even hold on where they do! Plus, I like the colour of the rocks ...
