This first picture I have shared possibly multiple times. But it is a picture that shows so much how I view the world. You can look at the canyon and see only the depth of the canyon. Or you can look at the tree high up at the top edge of the canyon and see how it the canyon below looks similar to the shadow of the tree.
|Canyon Mimics the shadow of a tree|
There were so many interesting trees. The area around the Grand Canyon is a hard life for trees and wildlife. The wind blows hard, there is a thin layer of ground over rocks and granite and yet trees grow tall and strong.
|Tall and gnarly|
|Just plain gnarly|

|The Bird's Umbrella|
Can you see the bird? I took a bit of a close up (below). If you follow the inside arch of the branch, about half-way around you can see the bird. It almost looks like a thick branch up close to the tree.
