chriswjohnson is at it again

Or to be accurate, still at it. He has another Bamberger Ranch post, this one about the secret lives of trees and stone. I can't decide whether the photo or the accompanying text is more beautiful. Money shot:

There's a story being told here, but I still don't know the language well enough to read more than fragments of it. On one side of the creek, ashe juniper dominates, on the other, oak. The oaks are growing out of a loose stone aggregate on top of finely layered limestone. The oaks are not remarkably old - forty years? - yet the stone in which they sprouted seems to have retreated, exposing half of their roots. Or has it?
