Braches of a Tree at Lands End Trail of San Francisco

Lands End Trail of San Francisco has many trees hanging on the cliff side. After days of exposure to the sun, wind, and the rain, the tree branches would grow wild, trying to hang on to the cliff side, as if it is afraid of falling off, thus creating interesting shapes, just like Medusa of Greek mythology, with snakes reaching out in all different directions.
