The Dancing Tree... (Click on any image to enlarge it)

The Dancing Tree is located in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California.  This particular location a place that time has forgotten and its beauty and solitude compel me to visit here often.


Although merely a reminder of the mighty oak she surely once was, upon first sight, there clearly seemed to be something more than familiar about her.  Circling her trunk, I stopped when I came upon this particular view and then at once it hit me.  There before me was Elaine Benes doing her hilarious contorted dance from the 138th episode of the American television sitcom Seinfeld which was titled "The Little Kicks".

Can you not hear the music playing?


There are seven images in this series but several more were planned.  Sadly, The Dancing Tree met its final fate during a major winter storm in early 2019 and she is no more.  Ironically, that same day I was caught in a flash flood and had a near-death experience as I was racing out to see her so I could make "Rain Dance" which now is no longer possible...
