High-altitude parasites

Mistletoe hence oaktree

On our wander today, we made it to the BeltLine for a short block or so, then back, a simple loop that was really an elongated rectangle. Somewhere along the way I spotted a twisty-trunked tree festooned with mistletoe that nobody harvested last month. It was a really tall tree, which would make downing the mistletoe difficult, but I bet the real reason there’s so much there is that no one harvested much mistletoe here in the city.
