Remarks & Notes 
A 2-foot "Juke's Tree?". The remote, dirt road crossing near Rose Wood Stables has become a frequent stop for the WW&F Museum's photo excursions. It is one of the few places on the line that is nicely lit from the mid-morning until not long before sunset. As a result of the location's popularity, the odd-looking tree you see with most of its lower branches missing has begun appearing in a lot of the photos taken by museum patrons. At the most recent event in April of 2016, the sight of a dozen and a half photographers all shooting this scene prompted Museum Member Stewart Rhine to remark how this tree has become the WW&F's version of Juke's Tree. He was, of course, referring to a tall pine with a similar dearth of lower branches, that exists on the old D&RGW line just outside Chama, New Mexico. It was made famous by the photographs of one Fred Jukes in the early 1900's, but that tree still stands today. Hey, who knows? In 100 years, perhaps my name will be associated with this tree in Alna, Maine.

Hey, I can dream....LOL!
