Climbing tree-hugs are my favorite.
And this tree-group gave me a lot of hug for my climb.
Below, a tree-hand peeked out of a seamed hollow to welcome me.
The four tall trunks, flattened ridges and thickly layered furrows, made a powerful bark-statement.
Nearby, weathered-rock with a mossy layered-look made its own statement. Message: Find what you love. It's okay to build your life in layers. Make your statement. Be you. Peace
A tiny pop of color in the carpet of brown leaves. Another statement.
