Ode to the Cottonwood



Fremont Cottonwood in Horseshoe Canyon

I love Cottonwood trees, they are like old friends, sheltering, steadfast, adaptable.  They may start out smooth and pale, but with age comes deepening furrows and darker complexions.

Adaptable







This cottonwood had a large limb that stretched out from the trunk.  The limb reached the rock and started sending out tentacle like smaller limbs to find the way around the rock .  See another view below...

Lots of character in those trees.

Cottonwoods are amazing and tenacious trees. One of the things I always loved about springtime in Montana was the smell of them. The sap in their buds is sticky, red and sweet smelling. Nice post.
