The Legend of Angel Oak
It is amazing, you can live somewhere and never really see the sights, the forest from the trees so to speak. Such is the case with the local Angel Oak tree. Dylan and Skylar finally got a chance to ‘explore’ the prehistoric tree last week with the help of their nanny. I never even know it was here!
The Angel Oak is said to be one of the oldest living organisms in our country. It is a Southern live oak located in Angel Oak Park, on Johns Island, near Charleston. The Angel Oak is estimated to be in excess of 1500 years old, stands 66.5 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet (1,600 m2). The Angel Oak has come to symbolize our historic Charleston.Come along and explore this amazing tree with Dylan and Skylar.
And, I know you all are more creative than me, I am really curious to see what captions you can add for these pictures of the gentle giant. Give us a glimpse of your creativity!
