There is a really great paved trail that wonders all over the lava beds. Seems strange to have a lava out-cropping right out in the middle of potato fields, but that's where it at.
Wondering around and exploring gave me a chance to to unwind from my 5 hour drive. Gave me time to contemplate where I want to go with my photography. Ideas on where I need to go and what classes I need to take. Some times you just have to stop, get away from everything and clear your head.
Now back to my photo. While wondering around the lava field I noticed that all the trees there are Junipers and they are growing right out of the lava. CRAZY! Came upon this tree that never made it through the winter. I could tell as it still had last years berries on it.
So this is my photo the passing of a Juniper, it had a rough start from the get go.
