I always wonder at the tenacity of trees that can find a foothold on the sheer rock walls of a mountain and continue to grow year after year, despite the rigors of snow,ice and storms. It’s hard to judge relative sizes, but they really are quite large trees, clinging to the side of a peak in the Rocky Mountains in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

    Good one, George!

  • Thanks again David. I’m always amazed how those trees manage to survive, doesn’t seem to be enough soil to nourish a dandelion..lol!

    This is amazing! What a marvellous shot! I agree with you, the tenacity of life is wonderful to see – even if it’s just a weed growing out of a crack in the pavement.

  • Thanks Mike, I’m always fascinated when I see how trees can manage to grow and survive through all the harsh elements that winter brings up there.
