Branch in Adobe


I can only imagine how long this piece of wood has been embedded in the adobe wall. I wonder if it's been in there since the wall was built.

It must be ancient.

peut etre un souvenir d'un ancien arbre qui etait plante la avant la construction

That is very intriguing. How did it get there in the first place?

You've got some conumdrums out thar in Santa Fe!

Now I wonder if the wall was built around a tree! Fantastic find!

Randy, this is one of your best! Superb image.

I'm convinced! Might have been there and witnessed the first wagons to roll into town on the Santa Fe Trail!

Thérèse said...

... or something which grew out of the wall? The idea is tempting.

Judy said...

Wow, that is so cool!
