A giant fell

A giant of a tree fell in the area where I took the picture of the chocolate tree this week and I didn't even know it. Obviously I wasn't at the Bosque when it happened because an event of this nature sounds like the end of the world. As you can see, the tree broke off several meters above the ground. My guess is that it had died and was rotting away in a standing position. The trunk is full of holes made by woodpeckers and the omnipresent termites have made their mark too.
