Urban Trees ~ Pele, Goddess of Fire

Today I will begin a series of pictures of "Urban Trees" that currently are on display along the Harbor (Embarcadero). We love hanging out along the Harbor as do the many tourists in the summer. Urban Trees is a public art endeavor by the Port of San Diego.

Mononeil - it's made of metal and it's not a silly question!
