World's Tallest Spruce Tree

We found the world's tallest spruce tree today.  It is fantastic!

The tree is over 1,000 years old.  It is over 191 feet tall and over 58 feet wide.  It is located in the Quinault Rainforest in Washington.

Just look at this photo of me and Dad at the base of the tree.

Now look at this photo.  See how tiny the people are compared to the tree?
