Canyon Creek Brewer Spruce | Trinity Alps Wilderness
The spruce hangs from granite high above upper lake—farthest to the right in the picture.
This graphic was inspired by Bob Van Pelt —sans the voluptuous characters he often includes.
The microclimate fostered around Upper Canyon Creek Lake provides optimal conditions—the Brewer spruces provide the good genetics.
Hanging on granite's edge, Dean Matheson grapples with the size of this beauty—is it REALLY this big?
From the granite above the tree Dean Matheson (left) measures the height with a laser and Radoslaw Glebocki (right) concedes that trees don't get this big in Poland but big trees are one more reason to love northwest California .
wow...even Skylar is impressed.
