Near Lake Quinault on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula lives the world’s largest spruce tree. Estimated to be around 1,000 years old and with a 58+ foot circumference, he’s a beast.
Following one of the must-do rules of vacation (always stop when in close proximity to the largest anything), we paid him a visit during our drive along the Oregon Coast.
The pictures do not do him justice…
Listen to the trees as they sway in the wind. Their leaves are telling secrets. Their bark sings songs of olden days as it grows around the trunks. And their roots give names to all things. –― Vera Nazarian
