These Crooked Aspen trees have been observed growing near Mayfair, Saskatchewan since the 1940's. Speculation as to why these trees grow this way has ranged from Flying Saucers to the chemistry of the soil. Most likely it is a rare genetic mutation found nowhere else. Nominated as one of Canada's 7 natural wonders the Crooked Bush placed in the top 54.
"There have been reports of people getting dizzy and light-headed in the bush. Only the brave go into the bush on the light of a full moon. Local cattle stay out of the bush without a fence. Why ? There is a mystery and beauty in these silent sentinals that guard the secrets of their origin held deep within their roots and the soil below. Respect its uniqueness and above all preserve this natural wonder."
Even today people continue to disrespect this natural wonder by carving their initials into the bark in many places.
