Strange Beauty-Twisted, yet Supporting Life

A couple of miles south of my house, next to a Les Schwab Tire Center, is a small wetland, populated by mostly dead trees.  I have always wondered what that piece of property started out as, and how it got to be the way it is now.  Last week, I took my camera and got a bunch of pictures of the beautiful, twisted, dead trees, their roots and lower trunks submerged in water.  Were they already dead, or did a flood drown them?

But look, there is green, living moss, growing on those twisted, dead tree trunks and branches.  It looks like Nature hasn’t quite given up on these dead trees yet.
