The sun sets on the Angel Oak, April 3, 2014, on Johns Island near Charleston, South Carolina. The live oak is believed to be more than 1,500 years old, ranking it among some of the oldest living things east of the Mississippi River. The tree is more than 65 feet high, with a circumference more than 25 feet wide, and a canopy of more than 17,000 square feet. The tree is named for its previous owners, Justus Angel and Martha Waight Tucker Angel, and is now owned by the City of Charleston. It was severely damaged during Hurricane Hugo but has since recovered. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
