About Today’s Photo:

This “witness tree” is a favorite of mine, and I say “good morning” to it every time I run or ride by along the Mailbox Trail. The woods are fast into “stick season” now…

Nikon D600, Nikon 24-120mm lens @ 24mm, ISO 500, f/16, 1/200″ exposure.

    John,
    This is a great shot…I can’t believe I’ve never been on this trail. What’s the best way to access it?

    • Hi Dave,
      Well, by the mailboxes of course! (About 2/3 of a mile up Taft Rd. from East St. on the right…)
