There is so much to see when visiting the National and State Parks in Utah that I hardly know where to begin. This image is a pinyon pine at one of the overlooks at Dead Horse State Park. These trees are dotted all over the landscape in this area and are so interesting because the trunks look like twisted knots of driftwood. If you didn’t see the green leaves on it, you would think the tree was dead. As you can see from this shot, they grow in the most unexpected places, like a crack on the side of a cliff or a boulder. Nature is amazing!
