Ponderosa Pine, Sun Mountain Lodge (Winthrop, WA)


With their reddish and crackled bark, ponderosa pines are easy to identify in Eastern Washington. There are many along the hiking trails around Sun Mountain Lodge, up in the mountains above Winthrop. Normally growing straight and tall, this one, on what I believe is called One Tree Hill, has been subjected to the fickle forces of nature but is all the more remarkable for it.
