Went to the Big Tree at Goose Island State Park and then drove around Lamar Texas. I saw 5 Whooping Cranes as I drove along the bay. I wasn't able to get a picture as they were to far away. I also forgot to put the binoculars in the car so I couldn't get as good as view as I wanted. The Big Tree is a 1000 year old Live Oak and has a diameter of 11 feet and a circumference of 35 feet. The branches are so heavy they had to be supported. When this tree was 900 years old the CCC Civil Conservation Corp installed the first fence around the base to protect it from vandals. I think this was in 1933 or there about.
This is a baby tree in the same area as the big tree.
