Climb Trees

Self-Portrait, Danny Lyons. Solo-climbing Misa, a beautiful Southern Red Oak, 11.15.09.

[everybody's doing it]
You'll be stalking trees.
Can't explain how, but you will.
Learn how to climb them.

Misa Tree

"Misa Tree," by Danny Lyons. Misa is a beautiful Southern Red Oak in Alachua County. These photos taken during a recent solo climb, the first ever climb of the 85-foot tall Misa.

Sunday, Domingo.
Day of Rest. Church. Misa Tree.
Who needs Cathedrals?

Fading stars retreat.
Rustling Leaves. Gentle, Fall breeze.
Crows scold the new sun.
