GRAND EVERGREENS IN EAGLE CREEK

















There is a long row of 30-foot tall evergreen trees not far from the 71st Street entrance to Eagle Creek Park. In the summer, they provide welcome shade in the heat for runners and cyclists. They remain green when all other trees drop their foliage. A winter snow, like the one we had early Tuesday morning, leaves these towering trees looking all the more stately. I do not know if these trees are a variety of spruce or pine, but they are grand.
