    The Will to Survive

    Went for a drive the other day, down a dirt road that follows an old stage road.


    I had to take a picture of a tree with a will to survive.

    Yeah, but someday that little old tree might grow up and split that big old rock plum in half. I feel like that, somedays. Not so much anymore, but every once in a while.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Oh, that's granite. Here we have cedars and oaks busting up huge sandstone boulders all the time, everywhere. a beautiful sight. So dramatic and full of energy, but not moving to the human eye. A tree growing in granite is a little different than one conquering sandstone. Thanks for the pic, I'll remember it.

    Naturegirl,

    You are right on - it is a boulder of granite - that's what really impressed me also!

    Nature is unbelievable, like in the Jurassic Park comment, mother nature finds a way.
