The Lone Tree

Conran, our guide who is a member of the Pumpkin clan of Acoma Pueblo told us that the Cottonwood tree is the ONLY tree on the Acoma mesa.  It' quite old and obviously quite tenacious! The table under the tree holds pottery ready to be sold to the visiting tourists.
If you are unfamiliar with the mesa, check my earlier post here.


  1. Thanks for the link. It looks like they are good at pottery.

    Doesn't look like it rains much around here.

  2. Cottonwood trees do like a lot of water. Being the only one must make it an important part of life there.

  3. Interesting. Glad it managed to stay on.
