Serendipty, that's what it was. I headed out to Wasilla Lake and somehow found myself driving out to Hatcher Pass yesterday. When I was there last, some folks dubbed a tree I snapped by the Little Su a "Hobbit Tree". I got a better picture of Mr. Tree this time and, yep, I think they're right. We've got a Hobbit Tree right here. Do you see the eyes, nose and maybe even a moustache about the mouth?
Hobbit Tree from a bit further away. Keep scrolling after this entry for a bunch of what may be my last "fall" photos of Hatcher Pass and probably a few more entries that I've neglected to mention.
