Super....just super. Curious what's that around the top of the tree? Looks like the top of an electric post. Also there seems to be a fellow setting on a bed at the bottom of the tree. Is it, or just my imagination running wild, tell me.

Its not a tree, tonyloo, it's a cell phone repeater mast. The WHOLE thing is artificial, like a plastic Christmas tree. An attempt at concealment in an envronmentally sensitive area. A bit bizarre as you don't find huge great pine trees in the middle of the Mojave. Fellow on a bed? I think your imagination is running wild. Try a look at 1:1

In German, a cell phone tower is called a Handymast.

Even in Vermont, where we have trees, these things always catch one's eye. In Eastern Colorado where there was not a tree for counties, they have these things. In some small way they make a small group happy. I think they are fun to get pictures of. Good shot!
