Today was spent exploring 'down range' on Fort Carson. Along the way we came across a huge fallen cottonwood tree. I don't know how to age a tree, but I'm sure this one had to be well over 100 years old. It lay in the field like sunbleached dinosaur bones. A closer look revealed that it was actually two giant trees intertwined, locked in a lovers embrace.
Rocky almost couldn't get up ontop of the fallen giant. One wonders what could have caused such a massive tree to fall.
Steve stood by the fractured trunks to give a better idea of the immensity of the ancient trees.
