I had permission from a local property owner to go hunt for Manzanita. I started up the hill and had not gone more than a few yards and seen this piece of wood. “That’s it! That’s the one I want!” That rarely happens. I have been known to spend hours hunting for wood. Always confident, that there is a nicer piece just around the corner. I think what really caught my eye was the base of this piece. It has always made me think of a flowing shawl over the shoulders of a voluptuous beautiful woman.
