Portrait of a Dead Pinion Pine Nut Tree

Portrait of a Dead Pinion Pine Nut Tree
These juniper and pinion monuments dot the Escalante Grand Staircase, serving as markers that predate the arrival of Europeans in the Desert Southwest. The trees probably were alive when the Anasazi (Puebloan Ancestors) were still gathering pine nuts from their branches in the year A.D. 900? Now the dead branches slice the desert wind as time moves forward and I can just see them gathering nuts, knapping on flint, and hunting rabbits…
