A Picture Worth 3200 Years

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. How about a picture worth 3200 years? One of my strategies for age-proofing my brain while growing older is to look for interesting pieces of information. I ran across one the other day, the National Geographic Society always being a good source. Photographers took and managed to take and piece together 126 photographs. This means that for the first time ever there is a picture of ‘The President.’ No, not the US president. Rather a giant sequoia that stands at 247 feet tall, is estimated to be over 3,200 years old, and has been nicknamed ‘The President.’ The story of how they did it is amazing, too.
