Christine Hallman of the University of Arizona LTRR has 4 photographs from Almagre from the Graybill collection. Although we didn’t have these matches in mind, there are some beautiful matches in Pete Holzmann’s photos, which Pete has collated below.
Here is the 1983 and 2007 view of the general Graybill Almagre site, looking to the east:
Looking to the south now. (The 1983 view is one ‘ridge’ closer to the mountain, and thus does not have so many trees in the way):
Now here’s an amazing coincidence. At left is Graybill’s photo of a BCP being cored; at right, Pete H. . The shots are from slightly different angles, so the background of sky and trees is not quite the same. But the tree branches are unmistakable and this is clearly the same tree. Even more remarkably, this happens to be our tree #30 (Graybill 84-55), which is the one that has the long chronology that we posted about in our first post (and one of the tagged trees for which we’ve been unable to reconcile tag numbers to archive ids so far.)
