Up a Tree

Today, as I was walking along a woodland trail in the Royal Botanical Gardens in nearby Hamilton, I heard a voice from high above. It was a tree trimmer who was complaining about the heat during her climb. The two men below had no sympathy for her as she had claimed the right to climb this tall oak to use a chainsaw and cut off dead limbs. I just stood back, way back, and took a few photos. I would not have liked to be that far up a tree and certainly not with a saw. I don't like chainsaws much even on the ground.

Makes me dizzy just looking at the pictures!

I don't like heights, so you couldn't get me up in a tall tree like that -- especially with a chainsaw (I don't like chainsaws much either).
