I wish I could know the history of these trees. They're amazing. The oak(I think) on the top of my blog is about 15 miles away from Fox Hollow and it's my absolute favorite. I've named her Gretchen. The one below is an old one that I've seen the turkey vultures sit in to air their wings after a rain storm. In itself, that's a pretty awesome sight. Never thought I'd say that, but it is.
I should have taken another picture when I took this one a month or so ago, so I could incorporate the full field it sits in. It's in an odd spot and you get the best view just driving by. I'd have to pull into a ditch to get the shot from the road and I'd rather not have to explain that to The Dad, lol. In the fall, the grass is processed into hay and it's another lovely site. Seeing this old, what looks to be mostly dead, tree surrounded by bales of hay or straw with mountains in the background. Naturally, I haven't had the camera when the birds are "line drying". I'll try to do better.
