WE CAN'T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES & FOLLOW FRIDAY- 40 AND OVER

California isn't the only state with big trees. They aren't sequoias but they are impressive nonetheless.  These are the Bradford Pines in the beautiful state of New Hampshire.  During the Revolution, these trees were just saplings and now look at them....






David is 6' 2" so you get an idea of how massive these trees are!








I'm linking up with my friend, JAVA, over at NEVER GROWING OLD for her fun Follow Friday party. If you are joining me from over there, welcome!! I'm so happy you decided to stop by. If you haven't ever participated in this fun party, click the button below to link up and play along. It's a great way to make new friends and find wonderful new blogs to read.




I'm headed over there now. Won't you join me??

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  4. Thank you all for stopping by and commenting!

    The bugs were terrible...it was unusually warm and humid...but the walk was worth it. The trees are amazing!

    Mary, I mis-read things all the time!

    Have a great weekend, Ladies!

  5. Hmmm, over 200 years old. Now, you've got me wondering how old the California sequoias and redwoods are. I think the trees are much wider than the New Hampshire guys. It's thrilling thinking those trees were babies during the revolutionary period.
    Su-sieee! Mac
