Tamara, take a drive to Aberedeen, WA and drive up Broadway St, away from the river. You'll see a very tall Monkey Puzzle tree in a yard on the left hand side of the road. There's also a Redwood tree a little further up the road.

Spotting of the day!

"Often described as a living fossil, the rare Monkey-Puzzle tree traces back 250 million years and it was once remarked that 'it would puzzle a monkey to climb that.'"
