Trees…

The trees in the Eastern Highlands were awesome, I wore my shutter button out shooting them!

This one, on the side of the road from Rusape to Juliasdale, caught my attention the moment I saw it.

Above is a bunch of them just before Froggy Farm (were we stayed.)

I learned that the name of this tree is Mkuti, in Shona, from the lady doing her washing below it. With its roots in water, its not really surprising its grown this big.

This one (above) is in Makoni East near a place called Nyatande.

After driving the road for several days, I eventually couldn’t resist stopping to take this tree portrait! It was a cold, windy and slight wet day. Perfect for this tree!

Some trees just catch my eye – even in the distance, they stick up, usually hanging onto a rock-face.

A baby baobab – does that mean Buhera is drying up like Mat’land? (looking towards the Eastern Highlands.)

Heading down to the Burma Valley, the trees almost covered the road – towering above these youngsters…
