Going Up

On our walks through the canyons and forests of our childhood, one can find amazing trees. They are huge, fissured and draped with delicate licorice fern and deep green mosses.

This is one of those spectacular giants. I believe it is a Maple tree--the tops of the trees are just starting to bud.

...with an elf's hat on top? :)

Thank you Cedar, for pointing out the elf hat! Too cute!

The tree is so impressive, especially when seen from this angle.

I can imagine all the wee folk marching up that spiral staircase!

That's a maple tree??
Love the elf hat. Did not see it.

I love the angle on this shot Beth!

This has the makings of a fairy tale.
What enchanted creatures live in that tree, I wonder?
