Another Up-Tree Photo & Happy Winter Solstice!

This is one very very tall tree – I couldn’t even begin to tell you how tall. And I don’t know the DBH – this was before I knew how to measure the DBH but it is huge. I just remember I was standing at the base, and I held the camera straight up to take this photo. This is one of the many beautiful trees that I saw on vacation in August of 2004 in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania, not to be confused with the Allegany State Park over the border in New York.

Happy Winter Solstice! Even though I don’t care for the lack of sunlight this time of year, I am always glad to make it to this point because now we’ll be getting our sunlight back a little at a time! Yay!
