The oldest tree I have ever seen

This is called the Friendsip Oak.  It is 500 years old.  It was a sapling at the time Columbus discovered America.  Old Oaks lay some of their huge branches on the ground.  They are beautiful and impressive.  We loved exploring it.  It is on the SMU Campus at Long Beach Mississippi.

We visited the tree as a part of our Senior Missionary conference.  It was a wonderful conference with our great President and Sister Tucker.
