A Dying Tree

I always like stumbling onto these trees — the downside is that it is usually on the highway somewhere and I’ll need to pull over fast or else turn around at the next exit; either way makes Heather ask what the hell I’m doing. To my side of the story though, I don’t ever do it if there are cars right on my ass behind me. This is along highway 97 also just past the Shoe Tree (that is no longer there because some chump burned it down) — it’s not got any shoes in it, but still makes for a pretty dramatic shot.
