These trees are pretty much the only trees you see in the Moab/ Canyonlands area of Utah. They are slow growing and grow out of the strangest places. Pretty much any crack in a rock or small collection of soil they can find to grow. They appear to be dead on the outside with their rough bark but they are very much alive and all of them are unique in their own way. This was I think the only photo I took of one of them but I thought it came out pretty nicely. The image makes it look smaller than it is, the tree stood about 4 feet tall from what I remember. The larger version of this looks much more impressive than this little preview, just so you know.
