Millenial Tree

Hullo bears and not-a-bears! Today was another outing day. Which is beary good news. We had guests from Alberta. They still have bitter cold winter so of course they were in shock at how green it is here. We went to a place called Cathedral Grove - it has super old cedar and douglas fir trees.

It is a beary nice place when the sun is shining. When it is raining, it is kind of gloomy.

These are the douglas fir trees - they can get super tall.

There was a little trail through the woods, so we walked for a bit.

So lush and green - I love how thick the moss is on the branches.

This is the oldest tree here - it is over 1000 years old and way taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa! You can't even see all the way to the top cause of all the branches.

Somebody likes taking sun-in-trees photos!

There were a few trees that had fallen down over the winter and the trail had been cleared. I didn't count all the rings on this tree, but I would guess it's several hundred years old!
