The pines are winning the race toward the sun.
The winners are very apparent on the ridge lines.
Yes, just in case you haven't noticed, the "giants are growing".
"Giants are growing" is my favorite quote from the book, Giants in the Land, by Diana Appelbaum. This is a superbly illustrated children's book about the history of the New England white pines.
