That's a great tree. Like a monster at the gate. Great shot, Larry!

I keep coming back for another look, Larry, so it is only fair that I click on the yellow star too.

I t is rare for us to see the work of humans in your wilderness shots, but gates make great subjects.

Cheers, Keith

Hey Keith.

There is a strip of private land along the river in the valley with federal lands (National Park and National Forest) on either side. Both federal lands are classed as wilderness, so it is an interesting combination. However, it does lead to some management problems protecting the river

Best wishes, Larry

Hello Gerry. I had not really thought of that, but it does have that arctic/equatorial look.

I have a Dracaena (dragon blood tree) in my yard and the cold weather we had seems to have taken its toll on it. All it's sword like leaves are falling off.

Best regards, Larry.
