Went Fossil hunting in Pennsylvania today, snapped this pic on the way... I always look at this tree when I pass by, though it is far up in a field behind a long abandoned house. Now that I zoomed in on it I see that there is an old wooden box of some type (a birdhouse, or part of an ancient treehouse??) in the crotch of the tree - someone else must have loved this tree too :-)
