The Milky Way galaxy rises above a small tree growing on a few boulders. It's a hard place to live but the tree is somehow finding a way.
I've driven by this tree many times, in fact I pass by it almost everytime I go east to Borrego Springs. At first, I didn't think much about it but then I realized how it managed to grow on top of a few boulders is pretty amazing. There can't be much soil for it's roots and whatever roots it does have won't go deep underground to access water. The whole area is arid and with little rainfall, growing would be difficult even on regular ground much less these boulders. It's a bit inspiring how it keeps going, life always finds a way in our universe.
