San Juan Sitka Spruce

The San Juan Sitka Spruce near Port Renfrew is Canada's largest Sitka Spruce.   On Sunday we checked it out.  

It is very easy to find being right at a forest service recreation site on the San Juan River.  For a map and directions, click on this link.

Yes, that is another tree growing out of the San Juan Sitka

The tree is hard to really get a sense of because of all the other trees around it.

The top of the tree has broken off at some point

a gnarly old maple not far away
