Photo Fun: Douglas Fir with a Tutu

IMG_5009 SapphireDougFirTutu 06_05

We chanced upon this odd-looking fellow on a recent trek in the Sapphire Mountains: a stately Douglas fir sporting a ruffled skirt.  At first we thought it was mistletoe, but a closer inspection revealed a low cluster of branches.

    • We actually thought it was a different tree that was growing in front of the Douglas fir. None of us had seen anything like it, including my brother-in-law, who used to work for the forest service! By the way, thanks for the follow!
