At first glance, and by its shape, it looks like an amulet on a leather cord. But it’s simply the remains of a tree branch hanging by its root, eroded by the river and wind on the edge of the river. It’s protected, by the rim of the bank, yet exposed to the elements.
Above the object, it looks like petroglyphs or fossils and the sands of the bank are the result of many years of eroded deposits.
I was pleased to find this special place, natural and untouched. A lesson to examine what you see and not to accept what your eyes understands it to be. The untainted landscape of what was left naturally behind.
