  1. Love this pic. I grew up in southern Arizona and really miss it.

  2. Wow that looks like a tree full of history.

  3. That is one beautiful picture – textures, shapes, movement, lighting. Perfect! The haiku is lovely, too – whispers of a tree. They speak no matter what condition they’re in.
