    cool photo! the caption reads "A boy left his bike chained to a tree when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike." but the real story might be here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-bi-DLACcLkk/TiTvNeagdCI/AAAAAAAAMwo/0UE2EAIxX6E/s1600/016.jpg

    (2012-01) A boy left his bike chained to a tree when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike. Incredible that this bike has been there for 98 years now! ((I've long loved images of Mother Nature shrugging off the effects of man... ~MRL))

    On Vashon Island (near Seattle, Washington), a tree grows carrying a rather unusual passenger – an old bike. Apparently some kid chained a bike to the tree decades ago and never picked it up, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike. The tree and island gained some level of notoriety when Berkeley Breathed, creator of Bloom County, wrote a children’s book inspired by the bicycle eating tree entitled Red Ranger Came Calling.

    A boy left his bike chained to a tree when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike. Incredible that this bike has been there for 99 years now! ;;; This is absolutely amazingly wonderful how nature can just adapt and let nothing get in the way of their growth and progress. I hope they continue to monitor this trees growth and continue to post photos as this tree engulfs more of this bicycle.
