Framing Mountain and Sky

This juniper tree shows the difficulty of its long life as it clings to the rock and shallow soil of this exposed hill top. The Colorado Plateau is noticeably arid and we could expect that this tree only added a few millimeters of growth every year. I saw a side path off of the main trail and took it an impulse and after a climb up the ridge, I found this lovely tree as the reward for my brief effort.
