Here’s the Harris Creek Sitka Spruce on Vancouver Island, B.C. We stopped here en route to Port Renfrew where an obscure sign marks the path to its location.
The fence protects the tree’s base, but just barely. Blake is standing a scarce six feet from the tree. Yes, the trunk is really that massive.

Time. (And what we want to do with it.)
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.
He is patient with you,
not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
—2 Peter 3:8-9
