Day 344 - The star trees
Melaney, is a good friend of mine that I tricked, I mean challenged into the 365 project.
The other day she posted a picture of the star trees at Willamette University. I hadn't heard of the trees and since she worked there, I figured she had the inside track. According to my Google search, she in fact did not have an inside track.
If I had paid attention for the last 14 years, I would know that there is an annual lighting ceremony.
The five giant sequoias were planted in 1942 and have now grown to over 150 ft. tall.
Their height isn't their only claim to fame. Supposedly, if you stand in the middle of the evenly spaced trees, when you look up, you see a five pointed star.
And so, I did.
