This is pretty cool. Papa took this in 1957.

You need to go to the full size picture then zoom in and read the little yellow tags. They are a timeline for this 800 year old tree. It lived through a lot of history.

    I've seen "demarcated" trees like this in my travels and like 'em, the markers bring perspective and are more interesting than a sign reading "this tree is 10,000 years old" (though of course that's impressive as well!).

    shame there aren't still more of them standing

  3. I love finding these! They are so interesting, to touch the lines makes me feel closer to history

    I haven't seen one myself. But it is amazing to think that it stood there for all those years, through so much.

    He took thousands and thousands of photos. He was never without a camera
