This image was captured in Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan in late September 2017. Frequent wildfires are fine for the grasses which regenerate rather quickly, however, finding a live tree is a challenge in the grasslands. This is a long view of a single live tree near Two Trees Trail in the park as the sun was low in the sky.
From Wikipedia...Grasslands National Park is a Canadian national park located near the village of Val Marie, Saskatchewan. This national park is north from the American state of Montana and lies adjacent to the international boundary. The park represents the Prairie Grasslands natural region, protecting one of the nation's few remaining areas of undisturbed dry mixed-grass/shortgrass prairie grassland. The park is located in the World Wildlife Fund-defined Northern short grasslands ecoregion, which spans much of southern Saskatchewan, southern Alberta, and the northern Great Plains states in the USA. The unique landscape and harsh, semi-arid climate provide niches for several adapted plants and animals. The park and surrounding area house the country's only black-tailed prairie dog colonies. Rare and endangered fauna found in the park include bison, pronghorns, greater sage-grouses, burrowing owls, brown bears, coyotes, ferruginous hawks, swift foxes, elk, wolverines, prairie rattlesnakes, black-footed ferrets and greater short-horned lizards. Flora includes blue grama grass, needlegrass, plains cottonwood and silver sagebrush.
