The Chandelier Tree

On our way up to Jesse's grandfather's house, we visited the Chandelier tree which is in the Redwood Forest in northern California:
Here's the sign to make sure you know where you're going...

Driving the CRV through the Chandelier tree.
Yes the CRV fit.
Yes the tree is, surprisingly, still alive.
Crazy, isn't it?
A few factoids:
- Height is 315 feet
- Diameter is 21 feet
- The approximate age is 2400 years old

Here is my photo for the day:
Today we got a nice dusting of snow...My goal in the photo was to take a picture of the small amount of snow on the car, but when I was aiming my camera at the car, I caught a glimpse of the American flag.
And, well, you can't cut the American flag out of a photo.
So everything (minus the car & snow) is a reflection in the window. 

Talk to you all soon!
