The biggest tree I have ever seen! I stole Dandoucette's idea and that is why I am in the (2nd) photo: for scale! (i'm 5'10 ish, not a giant, not a gnome)

it was one big ol' tree!!

It'd make an amazing place to have a treehouse, you know one you could live inside!

Wow. I thought some of the oak trees around where I live were huge! I won't show them this picture, they might feel a little inadequate.

That is a big tree. Can you get any of the leaves to help with ID? I'm not the first person to include myself for scale, but thanks for the props!
