Palm Frond, Claypool, AZ

I've driven by the church in Claypool several times, wanting to stop to photograph a magnificent palm tree that dominates the front yard. It is about 30 feet tall, but it is nearly as wide as that. The fronds hang down almost to the ground. Each frond is about 12 feet long. This is a close view of one of them. A better photo of the whole tree is in my stream and the set on Palms. Here is the photo I like the best to show the setting for it at the front door of a tiny church.
