Tetons. At tree line. It's a rough life for trees. These trees were not much more than ankle high.

A few larger neighbors nearby.

We saw lots of beautiful Redwood trees last week:

And an unexpected Albino Redwood! I mentioned to @Rockskipper we never heard of them and a few days later we stumbled over one. The Albino trees survive by getting sugar through the connection between its roots and those of the neighboring tree. Its unable to produce chlorophyll itself. Not the prettiest tree, but it was certainly unusual to see!

Have you ever heard of Kiidk'yaa, the Golden Spruce? Similar deal. The book below is really interesting.

We have a giant golden OGON Dawn Redwood in the yard, a real beautiful tree and a fast grower. I also planted a golden "Skylands" Oriental spruce (about 10 ft now). But I never heard of the Golden Spruce "Kiidk'yaa..... Just looked it up, uh. Hope they can propagate the cuttings, it's not easy.
I should get the book, thanks.
