Nature is Awesome

So I found this while browsing around the internet recently. I claim no credit for it whatsoever, I just thought it was a really cool picture and wanted to share it. It really surprises me how big they actually are. I guess I just never thought to consider how tall 300 feet actually is.

At least 1,500 years old, a 300-foot titan in California's Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park has the most complex crown scientists have mapped. This photo, taken by Michael Nichols, is a mosaic composed of 84 images.
