Caveat: Tree #234

I believe I have featured this specific tree before – it’s along the road near the 8 mile bridge, and has that distinctive fork in its silhouette. But I thought the light was interesting, so the tree will be featured again.

Caveat: Tree #223

I forgot to take a picture of a tree today. You’d think, with so many of them around, I’d get around to it. But some days, I get busy with one thing or another, and I forget. Good thing I was taking pictures of trees long before I started the daily tree thing, right? So here is a tree from my archives.

I’ve probably posted this picture more than once before, but not as a “tree” yet, so here it is. This is one of my favorite photos that I’ve taken, at an overlook above Millaa Millaa, Queensland, January 2011.

Caveat: Tree #220

I took a big long test this morning. Over 5 hours staring at a screen and answering a-b-c-d questions, and writing two essays in boxes. I felt like one of my poor Korean students.

Then I collected my bag from the motel and walked back to the ferry. Here is a tree.

I rode the ferry, feeling mentally exhausted. We arrived at Hollis.

I drove home.

Caveat: Tree #219

I am in Ketchikan to take my test tomorrow morning, bright and early.

I walked up to the tiny UA-Southeast, Ketchikan Campus (really just an annex behind the high school, though architecturally pleasant enough).

I saw this tree, looking down past one of the buildings.

This was the view in the other direction standing in the same spot.

This is the sign marking the campus.

This is the view from behind the same sign.

And I walked down to my motel.

I walked all over Ketchikan, as it seems better than figuring out buses for what is, actually, a pretty small city. Ketchikan is having a heat wave: it was 72°F (22°C).
