Bonsai Rock, Surrounded

Near Sand Harbor, East Shore Lake Tahoe, NV

Mid-afternoon scouting of Bonsai Rock on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe before the sunset shoot.  Too bad the wind kicked up and made the lake surface choppy along with the lack of any clouds in the skies nearby a couple of hours later.

Bonsai Rock truly is a testament to the resilience of plants.  3 pine trees (2 on top and one off to the side, along with a random red plant) have taken hold in the crevices of the rock.  With very little soil and nutrients, these little trees continue to anchor themselves to their island home.  I suppose it is only a matter of time before they grow and split the rock or exhaust their food source, but we should enjoy it for as long as they are there.
