Cathedral of the High Sierra

Hiking along the rim trail of Lake Tahoe I came across this grove of trees that evoked for me a spiritual sense of the wonder and awe of the High Sierra Mountains. It reminded me of the great cathedrals of Europe in that, interspersed among the living trees, were stone-like spiral towers. For me this picture communicates that life, death, heaven and earth are all one.
