April 18, 2011- Charleston, South Carolina
I just arrived in Charleston, South Carolina and was sifting through Tumblr when I noticed a photo of the Angel Oak Tree. I found out it was only 20 miles away and decided to check it out.
Driving through South Carolina is like driving through another country. The large old growth oak trees with moss, the churches everywhere, and the street signs are all different from what I am used to back home in New York.
After driving through a dirt road and past a bunch of small old houses, we entered upon the Angel Oak Tree.
Brando was running around like a little boy and I was taking photos like a mom with 3 kids. It was a beautiful sight
This is why the Angel Oak Tree is Amazing:
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. Read more about the Angel Oak.
