Naked tulip tree

Naked tulip tree

Kent, Connecticut.

Gary and I hiked south on the Appalachian Trail along Schaghticoke Ridge to just beyond Thayer Brook and we stopped at the big tulip tree with three trunks to pay our respects.

All the leaves are down now and this makes for interesting shots looking up at the bare branches. It also makes for difficult hiking through piles of leaves, hiding roots and rocks and all sorts of things to trip over. We had planned to hike the entire ridge but we were moving so slowly in the leaves we turned back about a third of the way down the ridge.
