Walk around

I went for a little exercise this morning, heading south from camp and making my way overland without a trail, the small mountain ridge being my destination. The weather was perfect, about 68 degrees, thin cloud cover, no wind. An outcropping provided a place to sit and a view of the Imperial Sand Dunes five miles away. And there was a gnarly old tree along the way, a desert survivor.


  1. what is that big thing hanging from the tree - looks like a big collection of vines... ?

    1. I don't really know. I've seen similar things on other tree species and was told it's like a cancerous growth, a tree tumor.
