The other day I grabbed my Canon and decided to visit northern California's Shasta Dam area for some photos. Seemed like every time I pointed my camera, a manzanita tree was in front of me. Manzanita everywhere! And I've heard that people actually BUY branches. Well, since I couldn't get away from it, I figured I might as well appreciate the beauty of it. It really is a most interesting plant! I would swear some trees even seemed to "pose" for me.
