At the foot of this massive tree, which I believe is a cottonwood, is a tiny dot. That white speck is a person we put there to give perspective. A 1906 article in The Christian Advocate says that cottonwood trees sometimes were used to consecrate the settlement of a new town. Google “cottonwood tree Liberia” for more a history of the species.
I think I shot this photo on a road trip to Sinoe County.
