Botanical Beach, Vancouver Island, BC (possible the coolest place I've ever been)





This tree needed some straightening!

The big tree in the pic where im pretending to hold it up is a Sitka Spruce. I don't think there are Sequoias on Vancouver Island, they are farther south in the U.S.A. The common types of monster trees in that area are the aforementioned Sitkas, Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock, various Cedars.

Ah thanks. I don't know much about those big trees; we don't have them here in The Netherlands... Only a big oak sometimes.
