Sandia Peak

with 19 comments

Late in the afternoon on June 12, 2017, we wound our way up to the top of Sandia Peak, a mountain that overlooks Albuquerque, New Mexico. At the top I couldn’t help noticing this deformed tree, perhaps a limber pine (Pinus flexilis). Years of prevailing winds had left the tree as a whole leaning away from the void and toward the ridge of the mountain. At the same time, one resistant branch somehow ended up bent in the opposite direction.
