Thanks for the advice - I'll try it with my next post
Very good picture.It´s incredible, it grows on stone. It´s a bristle cone pine,isn´t it?
Greetings Dana, Thanks for visiting Mills Lake and commenting. The granite just north of the lake is rich with lone trees growing out of small cracks. They look like Bonzai trees. This looks like a stormy fall day with a skiff of snow on the rock.
ALONE TREE VERY BEAUTIFULL,GREETİNGS.MUSTAFA 1112 YEARS OLD ONE JUNİPER TREE.
Greetings Mustafa, Thanks for visiting this old tree and commenting. As you hike up to Mills Lake you cross over a large area of granite that was scraped over by the glacier thousands of years ago. There is very little soil here so the trees that do grow appear to spring out of the rock. This is just one of many neat old trees in this area.
Good capture.LIKE!!!Greetings Alexandra & Karl-Heinz
Greetings A&K, Just below Mills Lake is an area where the glaciers came through and it is flat bare rock. Her and there you can find a tree that was able to take hold and grow. Cheers, Rich

Greetings Hermelin, Thanks for the visit and the comment. I am glad you like this location. It is a beautiful place to visit. This old tree is my friend. Lots of things to do. Take care and have a great weekend. Cheers, Rich
Thank you for visiting my gallery.
Another beautiful picture a bit comparable with my little plant on the rock - it tells how the fight for survival is hard in extreme conditions. L+F
Greetings Nada, Thanks for the visit and the comment. It seems in the summer you don't pay much attention to this tree. There is so much green all around your senses get a little deadened. In the winter time you are traveling over deep snow to get to this wind blown spot. It is at this time of the year that this tree stands out. It has been working for hundreds of years to eek out it's existence in what turns out to be a very harsh place most of the time. The tree is an inspiration to us all. Cheers, Rich
