Some of them we know a lot about, and some still have scientists baffled, but one thing we do know for sure is that they’re incredible sites to see.

The Crooked Forest, like its name would suggest, is a grove of oddly shaped pine trees. The 400 trees were planted in the 1930s and for reasons that are still unknown, they all bend sharply toward the north right above the ground and then bend back upright.

It’s generally believed that some sort of human tool caused them to have that shape to make them easier for creating boats, but others think it could have been a snowstorm.
