MR 544.1


    1. I would say mostly age. And yes it was “open grown” meaning that for its first 100 or more years there were no other trees around it, other than scattered oak trees. This tree is not in high elevations, I think it is around 2,500 ft. But it is in the river gorge of the Mad River and is subject to heavy wind.

  1. Gnarly Grouse ladder. Must have been open grown on the ridge, younger Fir’s filling in around it.
    The Chasm of Death story really affected me, all life is precious, don’t like to see such apparent suffering.
