Red inner bark striking
This was a big branch on the first tree relative we discovered. We also were both struck by the awesome red inner bark, that first looked like someone had painted it. Yet, the red nature shined through on many of the trees. Almost a shimmering flame like quality of the elder trees. The feeling of a deep dark connection to these old ones, makes it easy to imagine the connection of the Hecate Myths to the underworld. When I return, I would like to be with these old ones overnight on a traditional hanblechia to learn more about ancient tree wisdom.
