Another Russell Cave pic.  This is a tree along the nature trail.  I love trees.  In our youth, a friend of mine was a photog & I was a poet, & we used to talk about driving around taking pictures of trees & writing poems about them & putting it together in a book.

This picture was taken at Russell Cave‘s Native American Festival a couple of years ago.  It has always been my favorite.  He is a Cherokee hoop dancer who gave a demonstration.  It was a lot fun to watch.
