Red Tides

Red tides are generally caused by the invasion of red and brown algae that is poisonous to the fish in certain areas and toxic to humans. If you can see a fluorescent orange glow under the water, a good rule of thumb is to avoid swimming in that location, no matter how enticing it looks. A good rule of thumb is if there are dead fish in a place, you really shouldn’t swim in the water that the fish died in.

J-Shaped Trees

Spying J-shaped trees on a hike or walk through the woods can be extremely confusing for the inexperienced hiker, and quite perturbing for the experienced wilderness explorer. When you see J-shaped trees, that means that the land has shifted significantly since that tree started growing. This is usually a telltale sign of an impending landslide, but that can happen at any time anywhere, seeing J-shaped trees is just a little more evidence of the looming danger.
