More big trees

On my holiday out West, I encountered a few more big trees to add to my list of favorites:

7. Torrey Pines are the rarest native pine trees and grow on the hillsides above the Pacific Ocean north of San Diego.  Torrey Pines State Reserve, California.
I'm a treehugger.
8. Fremont cottonwoods along the San Pedro River in Arizona.
These massive trees are a bit much to get your arms around.
9.  Saguaro cactus tower above the landscape of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona.
Despite being a bit spiny, but this one hugs me back with massive arms.

What a way to end 2010!  Happy New Year Everyone!  And a special thank you to my folks for a fantastic trip!
