It's wedged precariously on a precipice, flanked by trees on either side. The log that crushed the top is cleanly cut on both ends and appears to have been dropped from a great height. I didn't find any stumps in the immediate area that would indicate where a tree had been cut.
I would love to know the circumstances that led to this enigmatic automotive tableau.
