It was a glorious day today! Our family went to "University Town" to visit Brandon. In the afternoon, the boys were doing things with their friends, so Brent and I took the opportunity to go on a walking tour of the big trees in the city. I've had a special booklet tucked away in a desk drawer for several years, awaiting such a day. It's a guide to the city's trees in the "Big Tree Program" and the trees listed are the largest known of their species in the state. There are 42 trees that qualify for inclusion in the program in this city. Booklet and map in hand, we set out to find as many of these trees as we could.
