Angel Oak

Down this quiet country lane you will find the Angel Oak.

It's massive! And so many of the limbs became so heavy--they dropped to the ground and keep on growing.
The tree stands about 70 feet tall.
Its been estimated to be 1500 years old, but I've also heard that is incorrect and the correct age is more like 500 years old. 
The tree got it's name from the early land-owners, Justis and Martha Angel. The city of Charleston now owns it.

It's so pretty and quiet back there. Our doggies love to walk this road. A very nice place to visit.

This post is for Suzan, who blogs over at :
