I've heard that the arches in a medeival cathedral are meant to feel like a forest arching overhead. This is one we got to go into in Belgium. I tried, but I didn't feel like I was in a forest. But it was inspiring.

201. Tree # 201P167.  Species: Ponderosa pine. Estimated age: 250 years. Collected: 5/17. Price: $1225. Estimated shipping: $100. Comments: A super cool, rare, old pine.


204. A bighorn ram standing alongside the road. Black Hills bighorn sheep have been plagued by a type of pneumonia in recent years that has greatly reduced the population. The GF&P is working on the problem.


202. Tree # 202S27.  Species: Black Hills spruce. Estimated age: 50 years. Collected 10/16. Price: $225. Estimated shipping: $100. Comments:  As it fills out it will get better and better. I especially like this tree because the roots are clasping a flat rock -a natural mud man hangout!

205. Tree # 205P180. Species: Ponderosa pine.

Estimated age: 75 years.
