The President

The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.

This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).

This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.

i love redwoods because they are at the very limit of what the dynamics of capillary action allows to exist i’m glad an evolutionary niche exists for “THE BIGGEST FUCKIN TREE THAT CAN BE”

The average yearly murder rate in the sleepy US town of El Paso, Texas, is five. In the adjoining Mexican town, Juarez, the average yearly murder rate is upwards of three and a half thousand: the highest per capital murder rate in the world. Almost all of them are Narco-related.
