Tell Me Thursday - Trees

Whoops!  I almost forgot to post my Tell Me Thursday post!

As a dear friend on Facebook noted, this tree was NOT found in Arizona.  When I went to Cedar Rapids last month, the hotel where I stayed was across the street from the river.  The river's bank was lined with these trees and I enjoyed spending an hour or so walking through them and sitting under them.  There's a certain amount of peace and comfort that I find among large trees.

I love Arizona's landscape, but I never see trees like this anymore.  There isn't enough water in our area for trunks to grow thick and branches to grow tall.  I love trees and I think that if I had to name one thing that I miss from living in the Northeast and the Midwest it would be the trees.

I really enjoyed the evening among the trees on my recent trip, and was feeling grateful for the opportunity.

  1. I could help you find some big cottonwoods and sycamores in Arizona, but not for the most part in the Sonoran Desert.
