More Trees

I've apparently been really drawn to the trees out here. Something about their dense vertical lines, and the stark contrast of light and shadow, just pulls me in. Maybe it was the year and a half I spent in the desert. Either way...

The Chandelier Tree

Quite the tourist trap, but still a must see. There are several of these giants in California that have carved out for travelers to drive through. I have to admit I've been to this one twice. I'm not sure what the allure is. I feel like it's one more chance for us to assert our assumed dominance over mother nature. I do know that as an East coaster, I will never get tired of seeing nature in truly massive scale.
