  1. There is a Monterey Pine just like yours along 17 Mile Drive in PB.
    I always figured that somebody trained it like that when it was a seedling.
    The loop, being near the base would support that guess.

  2. Like a crested saguaro, rare and a treat to spot.

  3. What a beautiful image……love it

  4. very cool Kate!!

  5. Isn’t that a “loop pine”?

  6. I’ll have to look that one up, Bob

  7. Great pun, Bob! :D
