The oak trees near the Dead Creek Wildlife Refuge are on my top ten favorite tree list. The number one is a Sycamore tree in Shelburne, Vermont.
The oak tree in the pictures here is one of the best for its magic personality. The branches, bark and overall composure makes the large oak perfect for drawing a fantasy forest. Alas, I forget what the leaves look like for identification here.
Imagine sitting in the arms of that tree, on a comfy platform, and watching the flocks of geese arriving and leaving or just reading a book on a sunny afternoon.
