Sunday Trees – 356

Tierra del Fuego National Park, Ushuaia, Argentina

Becca’s post reminded me of pictures I took this spring on our trip around Cape Horn. Here are a few trees surrounding the southern most post office in South America. The cold and wet weather here leaves many of the trees with stunted growth and covered in moss or lichen.

Sunday Trees – 355

Bentonville, North Carolina

From Wikipedia regarding the Civil War Battle of Bentonville:

“The site of the battle is preserved as the Bentonville Battleground State Historic Site, which was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1996. The park, founded in 1965, includes 130 acres (0.53 km2) of the battlefield and runs a visitor’s center adjacent to the restored Harper House, which served as a hospital for Union soldiers during the battle.[34] The Bentonville Battlefield Historical Association, the Civil War Trust (a division of the American Battlefield Trust) also own portions of the battlefield not included in the state park, including 1,770 acres (7.2 km2) by the Trust alone.[35]The Trust and its partners, including the historical association, have acquired and preserved a total of 1,861 acres (7.53 km2) of the battlefield in more than 50 separate acquisitions since 1990.[36]”

The tree photo was taken on March 21st of 2017 in front of the Harper House. Spring is just around the corner, so leaves had not started to bud yet.

Sunday Trees – 309

Sailing out of Stockholm, Sweden, we passed by this wonderful outcrop of rock with a bench for viewing the harbor nestled among a few trees. Trees can grow almost anywhere, including small nooks and crannies in solid bedrock.


Minutes later, we passed a small island covered with beautiful trees:


Trees are one thing you will find in abundance when you travel on the north side of the Baltic Sea to Finland, Sweden, and Norway.
