Walk counterclockwise on short marked trail circling around lookout tower. At about the 9:00 position from the start of the trail, (1/4 of the way around) locate the small tree on your left that grows in a horizontal arc. It took my breath away for a moment. Felt electricity in arms after walking away. I have a short video.

When I watch my video now, I notice I am winded after I stepped into the center of the tree's limb. Very subtle at about .08 into the video. Although I am no spring chicken, this was a very simple hike around the observation tower (it appears as a distinct square on the google map) on Spruce Knob, WV and I was not exerting much effort. I laugh in the video because I think my husband is funny giving a narrative. My arms felt electified after we left the tree as we continued on the short path around the observation tower. - vh54
