I do not know the age of this tree, but I do know it is very tall and about 5 or so feet wide. Perhaps Oak or Hemlock? We found the tree on one of our hiking trips through our woods. Every hike is a discovery, a new adventure and an opportunity to share our day with nature. Those trees, plants, boulders, creeks and waterfalls do not belong to us even though we claim the land as our own. They belong to the earth, for they are a temporary loan from God.
I cannot help but appreciate God's generosity.
(Woody enjoys the hikes as well and complains when left behind.)
