Trees of Bryce

It is quite extraordinary, that these trees will grow out of rock.

Rock that is just porous enough to allow some water and

sand to feed and hold the roots.

It seems they need hardly any nutrition to survive
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It would seem so - but they must be finding something!

Ces roches ont des formes très particulières. J'aime le petit arbre isolé sur la troisième photo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are called "Hoodoo's" and are shaped by water and wind.
Thank you, Martine! I like that one too!
Indeed Elizabeth, I am always impressed at how some trees can make a life for themselves in tbe most improbable of places.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are just amazing things aren't they!

It is an incredible environment. Life there seems so fragile yet it works. Do I see snow on the hills in the second shot? Frank said it was cold; I had the opposite problem smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: A crazy world! Yep - that was snow! Some leftover from the winter. I'd rather it be chilly - you can always bundle up!
As a 'lone tree'fan these three images really are a delight to look at. How on earth does that one in the top picture grow?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad you like these, Brian!
I've no idea how they manage it!
They have to be tough! Beautiful shots.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed, they do!! Thank you, Mary!

Stunning! I imagine the trees must play a part in shaping this amazing landscape.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Anne! I'm sure you're right... though I can't tell you just what.
those trees have some spirit, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Beautifully put, Ayush! Thank you!
all that they need is a crack in the rock..... some dust and presto.... ten ears later there is a tree growing... i love your presentation Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well that's right - amazing!!
Thank you, Peter!

Fabulous pictures. These trees are the sturdy ones, wonder how old they are.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Astrid! They are indeed... we should take a lesson!
And thanks for checking back on yesterday's photo!
Great composition, especially in the bottom one...
