I forget what part of the Apache Trail we were on when we stopped at this restaurant to eat. I went outside to look at the patio and the volleyball area and could just imagine how hopping the place would be in a few months and no one would be wearing jackets like we were. I had to stand in the sun and just let the warmth (mid 60’s at the time) wash over me. I was drawn to this tree because it had green leaves on it and such a smooth bark. I thanked it for letting me lean against it to take this photo so that when I was back home, where it would be cold and all of the trees would be bare, I could look at this image and feel like I was there again.
But I have no idea what kind of tree this is…any ideas?
(PS. The new system is about at 90% now – woohoo!)
