I know. That made me very sad. We drove thru her when I was little. I have a picture somewhere of us. It's like a piece of my childhood chipped away. My mom wanted her ashes scattered up there and she's still in my closet. :(

We saw this on the news yesterday and it's so sad. I visited there with my parents many years ago and I never forgot that one tree in particular.

Awww. Seeing this tree was on my bucket list. So sad I missed seeing it's beauty.

I also wanted to see the Old Man of the Mountain in Vermont, but it collapsed in 2003.

Oh, that's so sad. I remember my parents having a picture of their old car from the late 40's driving thru that tree when they were in California then. Later, we went thru it when I was a little kid on one of our vacations. I'm so sad to see it go.

I got to visit that tree when I was 6. I always wanted to see it again as an adult. Sad now.

I'm not an outdoor-sy type, but DH is. He took me to this tree many years ago. I'm so glad I got to see it! And I'm so sad is gone. I'm going to have to re-think my indoor lifestyle. Nature isn't permanent.
