Angel Oak

Do you ever just sit back and think about what life would have been like 300-400+ years ago. It would be about 1716 or 1616. There's a reason I'm asking you this, don't worry. 

There's a tree just outside of Charleston South Carolina, that is about that age. It's been there for a really long time and it's massive. We drove down a slightly bumpy, unpaved road and stood in awe of this huge tree.

Photo creds to my lil sis for taking this amazing photo. 

We actually visited this guy twice on our trip. The first time, it was unbelievably rainy, and the second it wasn't (obv). The tree stands at about 66.5 feet tall, and about 28 feet around.  The branches were held up by some posts in the ground, but they reached down and under ground a bit before popping back up toward the sky. The trees longest branch is a distance of 187 feet! 
It was really amazing. 
The world is amazing and it blows me away every time I experience it. 
I will probably say this a lot but, maybe it was because I went social media free and phone free, I just felt really luck and in love with life.

Visiting the Angel Oak tree is free to the public, so I would highly recommend that if you're in the area you come and visit. You can read more about the tree at this website! I hope you enjoyed this post!
If you were alive 400 years ago, what do you think you would be doing? Do you think you'd like it? I don't really know if I would, everything now has made life so much easier. 
I hope you're all having a great summer so far! Make sure to leave a comment or two :)

  1. Kenzie, this is awesome... I love seeing statures like this... there really is so much beauty in the world and it leaves me awestruck. I totally wouldn't have liked living back in that day, I really love having running water and washrooms and of course power.. so I don't think I would have made out too well xox
