Two tulip trees
Appalachian Trail near Kent, Connecticut. This is a repeat of a group of trees I’ve photographed a lot as they’re quite spectacular. I wanted to try them with the Ricoh GR and wide angle adaptor and that’s what’s used here.
There are two groups of tulip trees: one with two trunks and one with three. The two trunk group is two separate trees close together, the three trunk group is a single tree with a single large base with three trunks growing out of it.
This was my first (solo) hike this season from Bull’s Bridge to Rt. 341 along Schaghticoke Ridge on the Appalachian trail. I’m happy to report I lived (joke, sort of). It’s a tough hike and not for the out of shape.
These trees are right next to Thayer Brook which is toward the end of the hike going south to north and stopping here with one hill to go takes will power. But, these trees and the brook are magnetic in any season and in the end, I needed to rest.
