Changing landscape.

A statuesque Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi) that clung to the top of Sentinel Dame in Yosemite National Park fell in August, the Associated Press quoted park officials as saying. The landmark tree had been a favorite for photographers from as far back as Carleton Watkins in 1867 and Ansel Adams in 1940. The Jeffrey pine was also featured on many postcards from Yosemite. Park officials suggest that storms earlier in August may have been a cause of the tree's fall.
