As I drove past the park one day last fall, I was saddened to see that the tree had been tagged for removal. I hoped it would be spared its fate a little while longer so I could create an image of the tree as I wanted to remember it—immediately after a fresh blanket of snow had fallen. Fortunately, the tree stood its ground throughout the winter and I was able to capture this photo. Workers finally removed the tree several weeks ago. A framed enlargement of this image now hangs above my fireplace as a reminder of the sentinel that once filled the void I now see when passing by the park.
