Ibis Nights: Tree #2026

Oak 2026 is a gnarly old dude, it's got that weather-beaten skin that is scored and cracked with deep crevasses. I half expected to find a bee hive settled back deep in that big scar. And that is his good side, the other is a split and fractured patchwork, a map revealing the ravages of each winter tempest and each scorching summer. I don't know where this old man ranks in the aged pantheon of the Oak Woodland, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he is one of the more ancient; his girth at the bottom of the trunk is as wide as the Ibis is long, a distinction that not many others on the Cross Town Loop can claim.
