Photo of the day

I actually ended up subscribing to National Geographic magazine (I certainly don’t have time to read it) because I realized I loved their photos so much.  I actually took a look at this story about amazing trees last week.  It came with a very cool poster of a giant tree that we put up in Evan’s room. I think this photo does a pretty good job of showing the scale of these giants:

Giant sequoias live at high elevations, enduring cold, heavy snows, lightning strikes—and growing bulky and strong, though not so tall as coast redwoods. This individual, the President, is the second most massive tree known on Earth.
