OK, When I lived in Hooper, I drove by this tree ALL THE TIME!! When Rich and I were driving by it one day in 2005, we just happened to have the camera and thought, "That's a COOL DEAD TREE!" We stopped and took a picture... Just ONE... and BELIEVE ME... with ALL our images, it's AMAZING that we FOUND this one. Rich took this one and I edited it. He also FOUND it. Now THAT'S an accomplishment. =D
Monday evening I got a call from a friend that lives near it. She said that a farmer burned their field and a dead tree caught on fire... "It looks cool, you might want to take a picture!" I get there and LO and BEHOLD!! It's the SAME TREE!!! It's a SMALL WORLD after ALL!
