This is the road that takes you back to the park where the Angel Oak Tree lives.
The day before I left Charleston this trip, my son and I drove to Johns Island to see The Angel Oak. The tree is owned by the city of Charleston and it is located on Johns Island ~ it is huge, it is ancient, and estimates of its age run as high as 1500+ years. The Angel Oak Tree is the focal point of a public park, standing 65 feet high, having a diameter of spread reaching 160 feet, a circumference of nearly 25 feet, and it covers 17,100 square feet of ground. Its limbs, the size of tree trunks themselves, are so large and heavy that some of them rest on the ground.
I felt small standing beneath its branches and I was in awe of its age, size and beauty. When in the Charleston area, the Angel Oak is something you should see. I'm glad we made the trip. I love trees and this one I will never forget. You can't really get the feel for it through my photos, but it will give you an idea ~ the tree truly is MAJESTIC!
