This is Angel Oak, another tourist attraction near Charleston, SC. I had some more picures without people in it, but I wanted to keep them in to show the size of this amazing tree. "The Tree" as locals call it, stands 65 feet tall, but has a canopy of over 17, 100 square feet, with a base circumference of 25 feet.
