Is it any wonder that The Tree of Life has been the centerpiece of cosmologies and mythic traditions from time immemorial?
In the Kabbalah.
The Norse Yggdrasil.
An artist’s creation.
Below is a Tree of Life I recently had the pleasure of exposing at The Springs!
As we tear down the thicket that is the Buckthorn Alley, many beautiful trees are becoming visible; that’s what it’s all about for me. I put on an extra undershirt and braved the cold this past Saturday to work at The Springs.
After fetching some water at the Hotel Spring, I lit one of the brush piles that Andy Buchta made and got after it.
Pati met me mid-afternoon, after stocking up our water supply at the Parry Road Spring, and that was a good excuse to quit early.
We hung out by the fire for a while and then took a little walk. The video below shows how much further we have to go down the Buckthorn Alley to get to the open areas on the east side near signpost #13 and the junction with the cut-off trail.
Here is a short panorama video taken from the cut-off trail.
Views near the bridge by the Hotel Spring.
This spring gets late afternoon sun and is a favorite spot for birds.
View from the gaging station bridge.
And sunset at the Indian Campground.
See you at The Springs!
