Box Elder, Acer negundo in January.

I visited the Box Elder on January 1st in West Asheville at the riverfront park. The Box Elder is so beautiful this time of year with the samaras still holding on in the winter sunlight. If you happen to be out on a winter's day walk in West Asheville by the river, be on the lookout for the Box Elder tree.
