My About Page claims: “I have personally seen the largest living thing in the world.”
Here’s the proof:
I took this photo of the General Sherman Tree in Sequoia National Park, California, on June 17, 2005. It was part of a two-week road trip out west with two of my best friends, both of whom are probably reading this right now.
Sherman’s status as the largest living thing is debatable, but all other claimants to the throne are superorganisms of some kind – at least from what I’ve seen. If anyone knows a specific organism that’s bigger, I’d be interested to hear about it.
Even if there is something bigger, it’d be tough to look much more impressive.
Amazing, beautiful 🙂
Maybe not as big but quite impressive is the Ahuehuete Tree of Santa María del Tule in Oaxaca, México (I’ve been there!) with its 36 meter trunk diameter and more than 30 m tall… http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/1594/ here’s some info it’s on THE tentative LIST of World Heritage Sites from the UNESCO…it’s an astounding site, there are so many stories about it and specially about its rugged trunk, here’s another link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Árbol_del_Tule we are very proud of it 🙂
Cool! I hadn’t heard of it before, but it’s very pretty. I looked at the other pictures on Wikipedia.
I think your comment was flagged as spam initially because it had two links in it. I approved it once I got the notice.
