Love the bark patterns
Picture of contentment
These things are BIG. We used Nolan, the human yard stick, to guesstimate this one is nearly 60 ft around.
My photos (Nikon D3200) follow - I skipped the tree ones as Michael's are beautiful.
We enjoyed looking into the middle of this tree - brings back memories of reading My Side of the Mountain
Trees have been left where various storms have thrown them....fun to hear where the trail used to go
We had fun finding faces in the burls
Such majestic trees - I simply couldn't resist
When I saw this....
Me - "Kids do you know what causes these piles of mud?"
Stacia - "No."
Me - "These are tree pies."
Stacia interrupts - "Tree poop?"
Others start to laugh....I continue - "Yes, tree poop. You see the tree eats....."
I caught Michael's face but couldn't stop.....
"birds...and when it eats a big crow...."
Zander - "Out pops Tree Poop!" ::gasp::
We all had a great belly laugh. Michael took the opportunity to show Stacia mole holes and talk about them a bit...but she seemed captivated with Tree Pies.
It made thing of all the fun times we had camping with the Bower Family....I did my best, Beth!
Ah - I snapped the photo - then wondered why she looked melancholy....She was thinking of Jared.
Over the meadow and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go....

Living all of life before the face of God...
