One of the grandest...

junipers in Oregon, estimated to be between 600 and 700 years old. It's about 64 ft tall with a diameter of 5.5 ft, and it stands all alone amid ponderosa pine and sagebrush on the southeastern flank of Newberry Volcano. Good luck trying to find it amid a confusing network of logging roads!

In a word: awesome.
