how many generations
sky gazed through ancient branches,
before the Napa fires

Notes: This photo was taken in the Petrified Forest, Calistoga, CA in late August, before the fires. I wonder if this tree is still there. The Petrified Forest website relates that their buildings survived, but the condition of the property is unclear. Their parking lot was used as a staging area for emergency responders, some from as far away as New York and Australia.
