Trees Built for Texas

Texas Trees

On a trip to Texas last year, while driving through Austin, I said a rather dumb thing to Brendan and our friend Jason.

“I miss how wide the trees are in Texas.”

I had that thought again today when I came across this fabulous photo gallery of one of the world’s most terrific creations: live oak trees.

These puppies grow mostly along the Gulf Coast, but also in Central Texas, and they are great for tree climbing, or for holding a rope so you can swing out over a river and fall in, like this.
