Leaf on Mossy Alder

_DSC6244_Bristle

While getting things ready for my 70th birthday, I futzed around with this.   Holy crap, can I really be this old.  Honestly, during the Cold War I never thought I’d make it out of my 30’s.   Birthday is in a few days.

The Shattered Spirit Tree of Redwood Creek

_MG_4724_32bit_CP_Lg-2
Clearly there must be something hallucinogenic in the waters of Redwood Creek. It seems to be getting worse. Time to get back to more normal stuff.

BTW, this is an alder most likely broken by a falling tree in a storm.

Locally, trees with hanging moss are sometimes called Spirit Trees.
