Oh Wow. We have the same phenomenon here but with ancient bristlecone pine trees. The altitude preserves the dead and gnarls them into the most unusual forms. Quite like this. The head still upright is startling!

What a harsh environment. I love the composition of this shot and the title, as well!!!
Have a nice weekend.
