PlainSky, Nebraskans: Tree and Its Dead Sibling, Sioux County

Tree and Its Dead Sibling, Sioux County

Tree and Its Dead Sibling, Sioux County

I have a fascination with single trees and phases of natural life, which explains some of this image. Moreover, with its vast treeless expanses broken only by the occasional lone cottonwood, the high Great Plains fostered in me a propensity for searching out those single sentinels as they bear silent witness to the changes in the world around them.

I found this cottonwood, together with its long-dead sibling, some time ago in the back country of Sioux County, and vowed to return.

And return I did at 5:00 a.m. on a late May morning.
