There's nothing like a stroll in the woods to forget about the worlds' problems. Trees don't seem to give a damn who's running things. For all I know they may think they're the ones in charge and that we're just something that they have to live with.
Althouse is good at photographing urban trees; graceful pampered beauties that make city life more pleasant, even for those who never think about trees.
But for me the real world of timber is down by the river. Now is a good time to stomp around on the bottom land and see what those spooky old things really look like before they put on their leafy shirts and grassy shoes. Click on the tree and get a close-up.
