Greetings Laci, Thanks for visiting and commenting. This is one of my favorite shots on the Longs Peak Trail. As you move into the tundra zone where the winds howl through most of the time the trees only grow a few feet tall to stay protected. So you can look over most of the trees and see Longs Peak off in the distance to the West. This tree had several beautiful pine cones that made a nice shot. I am glad you like it.

Greetings A&K, Thanks for the visit and comment. When you cross into the tundra in this location it is hard to find interesting pictures. Glad you like this one. Cheers, Rich
