Lone Pine Tree With A Great View From The Top.

Lone Mountaintop Pine Tree.

 

Looking west from one of the many rock outcrops near the summit of High Point Mountain, the 2nd highest peak of the Bull Run Mountains at 1,311 feet, just 58 feet smaller than the highest, nearby Signal Mountain. Bull Run Mountains along with the Catoctin Mountain just to its north are the eastern most ranges of the Blue Ridge Mountains in this area. This dwarf / stunted Table Mountain Pine has been the subject of many photos taken from here. This is one species common to this harsh, very windy, hot and dry environment. This particular tree stands just about 6 feet tall and is estimated to be 60-75 years old. You are looking west across the Loudoun Valley towards the main chains of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
