South Carolina Adventure

This past weekend, Maz and I drove to South Carolina for a very-much-needed out of town adventure. First we stopped by our cousin Johnny's place and spent the night. The next morning we drove down to the coast to visit the Angel Oak tree in Charleston.

Angel Tree
From Wikipedia: The Angel Oak is a Southern live oak tree located in Angel Oak Park, in Charleston, South Carolina, on Johns Island, one of South Carolina's Sea Islands. It is estimated to be in excess of 1500 years old, stands 65 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and shades with its crown an area of 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2). Its widest crown spread point-to-point is 180 ft, which is longer than any other live oak in the country. Its longest limb is 105 feet (32 m) in length.

It was an amazing sight to behold.

I would pay good money to be able to climb this tree.

If you're ever in the Charleston area, do yourself a favor and see this tree!

I'm hoping to get over to South Carolina more often, now that I have a dependable car. Do you know of any interesting places to see?
