While on vacation at Folly Beach/Charleston, the Mr. and I made a necessary trip just a few miles down some back roads to visit the Angel Oak. It is much more impressive up close and personal, and really the only thing you can do is stare up through the branches at the glittering light spilling through and bask in its endless shade..and snap 50-60 iPhone pictures like I did..
I really couldn't even capture the entire beauty in one photo.

While different websites and signs provide a wide array of age estimates, the gift shop located beside the tree listed the tree in excess of 400-500 years old. This live oak is an absolute must-see.
