I didn't know the largest live oak is in Mandeville! I might have to pop across the lake and see it sometime. You should come down when the LA Ren Fest is going on too! :D

I LOVE that you put GPS coords in your post. :)

Also, having been to both areas that you mentioned in Washington, I want to really really really encourage the trek to the Olympic National Park. The Kalaloch Cedar is breathtaking.

Cloudland Canyon is near me as well since I'm right on the GA TN line. I've been there twice and posted pictures when I went.
