The largest junipers I've ever encountered.

Research led me to specialized websites run by academic professionals, and an identification of these specimens by Professor Robert P. Adams of Baylor University.

Professor Adams states that "...the big, beautiful juniper in your photos is now Juniperus grandis (formerly J. occidentalis var. australis).
