Welcome to Key West’s widest group of Banyan aerial tree roots! Did you know that the Banyan (member of the Fig family) is the national tree of India? Now you do! Isn’t it amazing what a FREE blog can teach you! 🙂
There’s two options in photographing this monstrosity: 1) Pay to go within the compound if a person is required in your photo, 2) Simply stand outside as I did and peer over the shoulder-high fence and zoom in for a FREE photo… then run like heck so they don’t catch you! 🙂 (just kidding… walk away really fast)
You can find this mesh of Banyan tree roots at 938 Whitehead Street across from the Ernest Hemingway House within the grounds of the Key West Lighthouse.
