Two silhouettes

The first was taken in October 2012.  The second January 2018. 
I have been climbing the path to the Wisdom Tree for decades and have never seen her in such terrible shape.  As others have said, her pine needles are sparse & off-color.  Her bark is discolored.  Her limbs are less dense.

Please don’t climb or hang anything off her limbs. Or she won’t be around in another 5 years.

She stands like a sentinel over Kawengna. The place of the mountain. 
She's stood strong through drought, wind & even fire.

What she won't survive... is us.

#TBT The Wisdom Tree a few days after the Oakwood Fire in 2007

Tataviam rock art site in Texas Canyon.  Unfortunately, the site has been highly vandalized over the last few decades because of its proximity to an off-road track. 
The pictographs are barely visible.  This photo is a combo of several snaps processed through DStretch and photoshop to give a sense of what it may have looked like thousands of years ago.

Chumash "Wind Cave" in a canyon below Pyramid Lake. 
The site consists of the "wind cave" with two rock art panels, an open-air campsite with morteros, and a huge cave below.
