It's said that the Spirit Tree is the oldest tree in Minnesota. I've heard that it's anywhere from 300 - 400 years old. There is no soil, it's growing out of the rocks along the shore of Lake Superior very close to the Canadian border. This shot was taken just before sun up. All shot with a Canon 5DMKII with a Canon 28-105 f3.5-4.5 lens. Thanks for looking. My new wallpaper.
