Kind of reminds you of a scene out of one of the early Clint Eastwood movies; maybe Hang 'em High or Fist Full of Dollars? Actually I noticed this specimen along the El Diente Way (The Tooth Way), the trail on the spine of Mount Medaris. Storm King Mountain (8,774 feet or 2,674m.) provides the backdrop. View is to the ENE.
