The tree post

I like running across lonely trees out on the prairie. To me it kind of says something about parts of nature beating the odds,surviving, even thriving when you see a tree in the middle of nowhere. 

This time of year things are stark and the prairie looks like rust. In southern Alberta winter will alternately appear and recede with the Chinook winds. October has passed into November and snow will eventually appear.


  1. When I see a tree like that one, or those that grow clinging to the rocks on a mountainside, I am reminded that the will to live is strong in both the animal and the plant world. Nice picture.

  2. I see the lone tree as strength and resilience. Another of my favorite things.
