Juniper

I have a kind of personal relationship with this tree. Over 50 years ago, I used to practice rock climbing on the cliffs right below this tree. It sits atop granite cliffs some 10 metres high and was often used by rock climbers as an anchor point. I was one of them, that is before I had a serious climbing accident which came very close to killing me. It was kind of like meeting an old friend when I visited this location today. I was pleased to see the tree had matured and seems to be very healthy.
