    I love all these but that last one of the trees I can’t take my eyes off of. Stunning. 🙂

      Thanks Gibber. The trees are lodgepole pines. Here’s the explanation I found for why they look like they’re wearing socks: “Dead lodgepole pines near some hydrothermal areas look as if they are wearing white anklet socks, at one time called “bobby socks.” The dead trees soak up the mineral-laden water. When the water evaporates, the minerals are left behind, turning the lower portion of the trees white.” Awesome, aren’t they?
