Creekside Giants

Old Sycamore
8" x 6", Oil on Canvas Panel

The end of January, Cheryl and I braved the muddy trails of Miami University's Bachelor Preserve in Oxford, Ohio. The trail wends along Four Mile Creek to the east of town and boasts some very old trees. Sycamores of such size that they can only be virgin growth, probably in the two to two hundred and fifty year old range. Near by is the Dewitt Log Home that was completed in 1805, when these trees were already growing along the creek.

A photo for size reference. Cheryl really loves these old trees!
