Kansas state tree http://hppr.org en Pioneer Tree of Life http://hppr.org/post/pioneer-tree-life <p></p><p>Can you imagine walking across an endless sea of grass?&nbsp; Maybe your journey started along the Santa Fe Trail from a tree-lined river bank of the Ohio Valley, the forests of the Appalachian mountains, or the sugar maple groves of New England, and now you face a gale of hot, dry wind.&nbsp; You think you must be on the edge of hell.. until... up ahead you see a shimmer of hope... a cottonwood tree. &nbsp; Thu, 24 Jan 2013 06:01:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 11436 at http://hppr.org Pioneer Tree of Life
