A really old tree

While bicycling through Stanley Park, I came across this huge and old tree that was felled in a wind storm in December 2006. An 800 year-old tree. That's pretty impressive, although also a bit sad that one wind storm can take down an 800 year-old tree. I stood for a while contemplating all of the historical events that occurred during the lifetime of this tree, as well as how my own life was just a tiny fraction of the life of this tree.
