The Recirculation of Cosmic Matter

After church yesterday I was out riding and geocaching and came across the remains of this tree.  Looking from this end, I think it looks like a starburst shape. That made me start thinking about how so many shapes are repeated in nature. We are only just beginning to understand how the shape is defined by the function -- the work of a Master, not random chance.  I found 3 out of 4 caches, so it was a successful day.


I also found the tree equivalent of a black hole.


Walking across this carpet of leaves was so squishy -- in a good way, not a muddy way.
This is the cache I couldn't find.
I think it's under the carpet. I kept thinking that if I were a deer,
this is where I'd bed down at night!


And this just made me laugh.



So, didn't do many miles, but had a great time using my muscles and brains.

A good Sunday.
