Angel Oak – Johns Island, SC

Angel Oak

Had an appointment out on Kiawah this morning. Had always wondered where the Angel Oak was and on the way to Kiawah I saw the sign for it. Had the camera with me and swung by on the way back. It really is an amazing tree. It is over 1500 years old and over 89 feet wide. The limbs are amazing. They grow so far and heavy that in some places they sit on top the ground. If you look to the left of the base of the trunk there is a lady holding a baby (to give you some perspective of the massiveness of the thing thing). Click the image for a larger view.
