  1. Good shot, Raven…At first glance I thought it was a rock formation….Is this B&W or natural color.?..So good to see and read your work again…P. B. & J.

  2. It is it’s natural color, witch1, I’ve done a couple black and white photos, very little difference.
    I’ll get a picture of the whole tree at some point, they are very unique.
    Thanks folks.
    I’ll put up a couple more photos, then get to packing for next weeks hitch on the trail.
    Laters…
