A Dead juniper

You have to wonder why this tree died. Junipers live for hundreds of years and grow throughout the Colorado Plateau. It is very unusual to see one that had died completely. Most of the time, they look like they are on their way out, but seem to put out branches and keep going. This is especially strange because the surrounding pinon pines and junipers look healthy. Live or dead, junipers make good subjects for photos.
