Friday the 13th was still a lucky day for the one root tree at Starr...still standing.
I thought it had keeled over in the recent Trenching but here it is !
There's a prominent rock face below the remaining roots. a new trench exposes some of it, hand diggers can continue. That main tap root must be growing down through a crack that had dirt in it...Paleo ?
I would call this some good luck....
Lakes all over central Tx are very low. The Starr lake must be close to the water table as it's holding up so well.
