Poison Ivy Vine

Hiking along, minding my own business.  I came across a monster poison ivy vine going up a tree.  This reminds me of the Tom Cruise version of the War of the Worlds.  The “vines” in the movie were really carrying blood for the aliens…but anyway.  Remember, this is not Grand Theft Auto.  It’s for real!

Here is a poison ivy vine with leaves at the base.  Notice the three leaf pattern to watch out for when in the woods.  And of course, look for the weird vines in the trees!
