Recently I spent 2 weeks travelling & camping throughout Utah - USA. 3,200kms, 5 National Parks, 4 State Parks, Numerous Bureau Land Management & a National Monument - I came away with the most amazing experiences & captured trees with so much character. The coming posts will show some of the most resilient trees I have ever seen. I hope you enjoy. =========================
The Secret Language of Trees - Valley of the Gods - Utah, United States of America. =========================
Cottonwood Trees - Valley of the Gods - are very important to the native people living in North America. Life on the wild prairie plains is harsh & trees are a rarity in the grasslands. Finding shade or collecting firewood is very difficult. However, cottonwood trees are an exception to this rule. They thrive easily on the grasslands and are found across North America. I came across this beauty camping at the Valley of the Gods in a dry river bed. • .
In the background you can see the iconic Battleship Rock & I assure you it’s a truly spectacular feeling waking up next to this
geological masterpiece, sculpted from Cedar Mesa sandstone dating to the Permian period, around 250 million years ago. Eroded by water, wind and ice over millions of years, the rock as you can see & I will be posting more pictures of Utah on the page @the_sky_moves_sideways - please feel free to check them out :).
Cottonwood trees are extremely important. They help maintain many ecosystems & protect endangered flora and fauna. Respect & awareness - this unique tree creates a greener and cleaner future.
