. . .framed by two trees, that is. Itla-okla was the Indian word for "tree hair". The French poked fun at the Spaniards by calling it "Spanish Beard", then the Spaniards got even by calling it "French hair". The Indians liked "Barbe Espanol" or "Spanish Beard" better, but later the name became Spanish Moss. It is backlit here on that big live oak tree on the left/background and elsewhere in this photo helping to provide added beauty to this image on the pristine Blue Spings.
