the porcupine tree
One of my favorite trees on the mountain, just over the line onto the neighbor's property on top of the ridge. It's a chestnut oak that's been severely pruned by porcupines over the years. For some reason, they often target the oldest chestnut oaks — maybe they're also the sweetest? This one supplies some high-quality real estate, as well.
As long as I've admired this tree, I only noticed the rather obvious face
on the north side, near the base of the tree
, for the first time the other day.
