108 Cottonwood

Weblog reader Adele sends a couple of stunning photos of my favorite cottonwood, and hers, on Minnesota Highway 108 north of Rothsay.

I think one could fill a gallery with photos of this tree throughout the various seasons. It is the very picture of elegance, strength, solitude, dignity--and exuberance. Adele, you live closer to the tree than I, so I am afraid the seasonal cycle will be yours to capture.
