    It must have cool but scary at the same time! All tree roots are pretty shallow! I'd guess the soil type might have more to do with it (northern areas usually have more organic material).

    All I know is that if I was out for a hike and saw this, I'd run for my life!

    Figure that Nova Scotia might be much like what I remember from NH: lots of rock covered by not a whole lot of soil . WHOA!

    I'm not sure what I would do! I'd want to stay but I also wouldn't want to get hurt...

    Yes, it appears as if the trees are just about ready to topple.
    But...perhaps the very 'bendy' nature of the whole area is what prevents this!
    Nature is fascinating, in all its many configurations.
