I hope you all will indulge my artistic side. I was intrigued by down and dying tree stumps throughout Yellowstone Park. Yellowstone is a conservation and preservation park. Meaning if a tree falls and it is not an immediate hazard it is not moved. Lodge pole pines have swallow roots which can fall during high winds. Thermal areas can appear and kill trees in the wake. I spent all summer taking pictures of trees and tree roots. I can now properly edit the photos now that I have access to reliable internet. I hope you enjoy my summer labor.
