Big Trees!

We went to Armstrong Forest a few days ago and looked at the very tall trees. The one named Colonel Armstrong is 308 feet tall and 1400 years old. It was a sapling in the year 600 AD. I took a bunch of pictures and there is no substitute for being there staring up at someone you cannot see the top of. Their trunks are so massive they create their own gravity well that sucks you right in to touch and hug them. 

Once I stepped back a couple hundred feet I could see the top of the Colonel in the sunshine
They get a lot of rain around here. I think this used to be a drinking fountain
Dappled sunshine touches the ground
