Forest of Nisene Marks Advocate Tree, 260 Feet Tall, over 1000 years old

On the way home from our glamping trip near Santa Cruz, we made a stop at the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. I’ve seen photos from here before and knew it was a stop I wanted to make. Unfamiliar with the park, we parked in the lot just after the entrance and made our way around the old growth loop. On the loop we were able to find the Advocate Tree, at more than 260 feet tall, the tree is over 1,000 years old, one of the biggest and oldest in the park. I always feel humbled when I’m unable to see the top of a tree, it really puts life into perspective for me.
