lone tree grows sideways
roots clinging to rocky hills
a true survivor
I love these pines and cedars that cling to life in the craziest places. Thanks to Jennifer Parker for sharing her lovely photo taken on Mt. Magazine. At 2753′, it’s the highest peak in Arkansas. Mt. Magazine is a flat-topped mountain capped by hard rock and craggy cliffs. Trees need to be hardy to survive on these rocky hillsides. I could learn a lot about determination from these trees.
May we keep growing no matter the circumstances.
