Hello everyone,

Was hiking Sentinel Dome and Taft Point this past weekend and thought I'd share some of the trees I found interesting. The dead, gnarled pine is the Jeffrey Pine, or what remains of it, that Ansel Adams famously photographed years ago, maybe the 40's. Thanks for looking!

Thanks. Wow do they have a story to tell. Good to remember that our trees should also tell a story.

They endue a lot and it always amazes me how they thrive...even with the tourists that mess with them from time to time.

Funny, I have a juni that looks almost exactly like the one in the second photo. The trunk is a bit shorter but I always thought it didn't look like something you would find in nature because of the dead limb on one side. Just goes to show you..
