Above the Rim

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

A lone Douglas fir grows on the southern rim of Bryce Canyon.  The Douglas Fir is a widespread conifer, adapting well to its immediate environment.  This one, for instance, is self-pruned to contain its size and growth needs in this arid, high-altitude location.  For the insects and small mammals that live in this harsh alpine environment, this firís seeds make a preferred meal.
