The Sweetness of Trees


Montezuma castle 1 big old tree

I stopped at Montezuma Castle today. It is a group of cliff dwellings created by the Sinagua Indians circa 1100. On the grounds was this lovely tree. Ever since I was a young child and would crawl out my window and sleep in the tree in our backyard, trees have always held a fascination for me. I have always had a favorite tree on a route to work, route to the store, route to my son’s school. I will drive out of my way to gaze at a tree that I love. Even walking in Prescott, passing old historic buildings, stores filled with beautiful art, it is the quaking Aspen trees that delight and inspire me.
