That is a giant tree stump I found on a short hike on a recent trip out west. I meant to take a picture of my hand in front of the camera to show scale but then I realized I would have nothing to show for perspective. Trust me. It was a large and dirty stump. Very rooty – quite actually ripped from the earth and toppled over on its side, waiting to be overtaken by rain, moss, and worms. Kind of like this blog.
I am hoping for a rain, moss, and worm revival come fall.
