"P" is for...ABC Wednesday 110310





"P" is for pinyon. While I live down in the desert, I travel through a pinyon forest every time I drive up our local mountains to visit my horses. I board them up in the mountains, out of the desert. I enjoy stopping to view the pinyon trees, especially the dead ones. They have a certain beauty and grace, don't you think? There are some live ones that lean out over the highway, including this one. While there aren't many turnouts, there are a couple of places where one can stop, and I see many people pulled over on the weekends. They are off hiking and exploring our pinyon areas!

  4. What a nice drive. And yes I like to look at dead trees also. It is interesting to look at the shapes without all the leaves.
