RIP: Klootchy Creek Giant -- Oregon Sitka blows down
My pal BP has a great post about the giant Oregon Sitka Spruce that blew down in the storms last weekend:
This is one of the oldest living things in Oregon, and one of the biggest trees in the state as well. The tree was coming to the end of its natural life cycle, and showed signs of wear long before this storm finally snapped its trunk.
Here are a couple of other great blog posts about The Klootchy Creek Giant:
Travels With A Muse got to spend some time with the tree last month and took some photos before it fell. And The Grumpy Forester has an amazing retrospective on the Klootchy Creek Giant.
