Castle Rock is a wonderful rock formation just off I-90/94 south of Tomah in Wisconsin. (See my picture post from last year's trip for more about the place.) I took more pictures there this year, and for this post, I'm going to post a few pictures of the pine trees there.
This little pine tree, half dead but still reaching for the light, speaks of the tenacity of life.
LJ is still wedged, so I'll try putting the other pix in responses.
