Giant Sitka Spruce

Giant Sitka Spruce

This is one of the largest Sitka spruce trees in the world … and is quite accessible. It is only a short walk from the road along Lake Quinault. So, it gets a lot of visitors. I was there as a child … (that’s me being held by my father). Since 1950, the shrubs have grown up around the base of the tree… this was taken on the back side of the photo above.
