Spearpoints

If you hike in the front range, you see a lot of dead pines. I got up nice and close to a bundle of needles still attached to a fallen branch to get a look at  these little spearpoints.

Went hiking last weekend (Eau Claire is not exactly the Rockies...) and was intrigued by pine needles as well. I have the sap-covered mittens to prove it.
Also, I really like this photo to give the needles their due spotlight. Seems pretty leaves got all the attention lately around here. :)

They have pine trees in other places?!

They are pretty interesting, but it takes a bit more work to show it. Ah well, that's what I'm here for.
