Gorgeous tree!!... such a big tree, but with relatively long and slender branches. Indeed very contrasting. ~bangchik

Joanne these are all just marvelous. You can just get lost in the images. Our middle one, PickyProf has been but we have never been fortunate to go yet.

Also, thanks for reading. I am here to pick up a link to you and add to the post. I am playing a game of my own to see who actually reads?

There's never any doubt about you. but, it is not what you think!

Have a great week!

Wonderful perspective on that last tree photo!! I can really sense "my small scale" in relationship to such a grand old tree....

Beautiful. Ancient trees hold a special place in my heart.

Ratty, yes it does and even to me. With all the renovating that is going on there, I discover something new each time I visit and I visit very often.

MountainWomans, For me as well :)
