Native American Trail Marker Tree

This tree is next to a trail I hike often.  I recently read an article about Native American Trail Marker Trees.  Through out North America and Canada these trees can be found.  Naive Americans bent young trees and tied them down with leather straps,  and then used them as a marking system to denote places where there was good food, water or safe hiking routes.
