Where's Hoss and Little Joe
You would think if you heard the terms "Ponderosa Pines" you would see Pa, or Little Joe, or Hoss hanging around. (Maybe I'm dating myself). But, I didn't see any of them. The pines, though, were quite magnificent. Most of the mountains of Northern Arizona are covered with them. I'm sure the ones I was seeing or had access to were not necessarily virgin pines. Even so, they were very distinct looking and quite tall. I can only imagine how big the originals were maybe 150 years ago. Here's a black and white shot. I have color shots, too, but the midday sun was playing havoc with colors and lens flares.
