Trees - the best of

I've found some wonderful trees on our trek across this country (Bahamas and Mexico).  I love trees and wanted to share my favorites in one place.  Hope you enjoy.  It is hard to do justice to the beauty of a tree with a photograph, but I did my best to capture the allure of trees.
