The climbing tree on campus glows brightly even on a bleak day.


  1. This is one of my favorite trees on campus. It’s especially gorgeous in the spring, with all of the pink blossoms.

  2. This photo and several more of Carolyn’s pictures will be featured in the December issue of the Swarthmore College Bulletin, at the beginning of the Class Notes section. We run a regular page of such photos and have featured the work of Miles Skorpen as well. Great work, Carolyn!

  3. I am using this photo as my background on my desktop. It is fabulous. I really enjoy all the Gazette photos.
