Been there (but haven't done that!).

It's a tad impressive when you're standing at its foot.


And here I was about to chew you out about talking politics on the IBC -- considering.

Saw that tree about 20 years ago. There really isn't a word that adequately describes how immense and impressive it is. I took pictures but none of them even remotely do it justice.

Would love to get out there for another visit. Someday.

Not any more but there used to be one that fit the bill: AWESOME!

Today, we've cheapened that word to mean as little as a decent steak dinner.

The closest may be "overwhelming."

"Overwhelming", that does describe the feeling pretty well.

I remember from the article that this tree is a candelabra, with a dead top.
