900 years old of Camel Thorn Tree

I feel the spirit of the dead tree which are believe to be about 900 years old.

According to Wikipedia – when the climate changed, drought hit the area and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area. The tree died, as there was no longer enough water to survive. The remaining skeletons of the trees, which are believed to be about 900 years old, are now black because the intense sun has scorched them. Though not petrified, the wood does not decompose because IT IS SO DRY.
