Good Planet

Tree in front of Zion Lodge
This is one of the biggest trees I've ever seen. It is in front of Zion Lodge in (where else) Zion National Park. I had to switch to my wide angle lens which I hardly ever use to capture the most of the tree.
Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that I am a nature lover, aka tree-hugger. But this is not a nature blog by any means. If you are feeling an unrequited love for nature and feel like wallowing in it, a good place to start is the Good Planet carnival (I guess it's a carnival). This carnival celebrates our beautiful planet with pictures of same. Last month's is up on Somewhere in NJ (January 6 post) including one of my photos. Susan Gets Native will be hosting next month's and you can submit your shots to her. I'm not sure exactly what the protocol is so head on over to her site with questions.

That is indeed a beautiful tree and find myself taking pictures of a lot of trees. Zion Park is a beautiful place, too.

Oh honey, I am a nature lover right there with you. Beautiful pictures. And I, for one, love animals, so any pictures of your cats will also be enjoyed!

Hi! Just a small correction - I have Good Planets for all of January (and plan to post the other pic you submitted this Saturday). The carnival will have a new host next month, but it's not Susan Gets Native - not sure who, but will let you know if you're interested in sending more pics.

Hayley and I saw a tshirt yesterday that said, "Hug me. Not a tree." Your tree-hugger comment made me think of that. It was a cute tshirt, which I almost bought for Hayley. But neither she nor I liked the cut of it. (We got the tripod instead.)
