The trees still look mad.

Screaming Trees - Hwy 491 - Mesa Verde Colorado - a.d. elliott

I have been messing with these pictures for a while Mom,

and I can't seem to get them right.  Between 1996 and 2003 there were several fires at Mesa Verde and a lot of the bristlecone pines burned.

I have seen quite a few fire scars but this one struck me as odd, all of the trees looked mad.  Really mad.  I still don't think I captured how eerie it was on that plateau surrounded by angry trees, but it was quite the humbling experience.
