|A stitched panorama I made of The Senator the last time I saw it.|
Thursday, July 16, 2015
This was The Senator. It was the largest tree in eastern North America. Located in Big Tree Park near Orlando, I would often implore friends and acquaintances to visit it if they were anywhere near that part of Florida. Every time I was in that part of the state I would go to see it. Unfortunately, it's dead now. A couple of meth freaks climbed over the fence, crawled inside a hollow in the tree, intentionally started a fire inside of it and burned it down. What little that remains of our world that has not been utterly wrecked by humans is quickly fading. If there's any of it that you want to see, I strongly suggest that you get busy seeing it.
