Now, that's obviously a species you don't find on the Sierra Nevada's western slope!

Not much more to be said about this falling woody object.

Mouse, I almost had to perform an Auto-Heimlich I was laughing so hard!
At first I figgered the cars were the target, but NO! It was obvious from
the git-go his undercut was all wrong, not to mention his going all northwoods
heman with the axe. PRICELESS!

That felt good. Too bad it didn't fall on that moron as well.
Why cut down that beautiful tree? So sad. Maybe the tree was sick? Looked healthy from the distance.

Speaking of history........
I took this photo on Sunday in the Sutter Buttes. A friend is at the base of this Valley Oak growing in a corral built by General John C. Fremont in 1849. He camped out here for ten days gathering troops and munitions before continuing on to overtake Sonoma and seize California from Mexico (aka The Bear Flag Uprising).

We had permission from the land owner to hike here.

Timid, great pics!

Mouse, am I the only one that climbs high in the tree and puts lines with tension in the direction I want it to fall??
Wow, that was amazing.

If a tree falls in the forest, does it bother to shout, "Oh, shit!" like a pilot does when he's going into the ground?

I couldn't get enough of these trees in the Archipelago of the Galapagos. Our guide, a native of the archipelago, had the coolest way of saying "Holy Stick Tree". . . I just loved him and his Holy Stick Trees.

Makes sense. Dropping it that way gets you much more firewood.
