There’s a fantastic grove of Jeffrey Pine just past Merced Lake that I’ve been visiting in the spring usually for nigh on 30 years. If it’s later in the year I’m coming from above have been on the trail awhile and really stink. I think these trees know me.
Wait, actually I don’t stink–I bathe daily–but my personal smell is pronounced.
There’s also a thick cluster of trees that have been re-occupying a burn area below that lake. I’ve watched them slowly grow higher over a similar period of time. Sometimes I’ve camped by them, again usually in the early spring. I think about all these trees often.Dec 15, 2019 at 6:59 am #3622910SIMULACRABPL Member

As a child, I used to repeatedly read a children’s book called The Giving Tree. This reminds me of that. The Mountains do miss usDec 15, 2019 at 9:51 am #3622913

I hate to spoil a joke and I thought I had but I see that my first comment still was too subtle.Dec 16, 2019 at 12:42 am #3622999obx hikerBPL Member

We buy TP made 100% from recycled paper and cardboard, without the usual chlorine bleaches. We like to think it helps.
