Old Car and Tree

I took a 4,000-mile trip to Oregon and back, and took lots of beautiful (or at least potentially beautiful) photos: sunsets, bridges, lighthouses, etc. But this turned out to be one of my very favorites — a tree that appeared to be growing through the middle of an old car. I looked at the car closely and actually think it was reassembled around the tree, but never mind that. I love it anyway.

I was totally blown away by the profusion of ferns in the Pacific Northwest — we just don’t see ferns like this in the desert Southwest. This photo, taken at Ecola State Park in Oregon, shows ferns growing not only out of the ground but from two of the tree’s limbs as well.
