Video: Don't Forget to Look Up!

This video takes us on a climb that is only about 180 feet (55 meters) and yet fewer people have completed it than the climb up Everest. That's because it is only done once a year, when climbing instructor Tim Kovar takes a group to the top of the one of the tallest trees in the world – a sequoia in California named "Grandfather." This is a life-changing experience for those who do it and one look at this short film and you'll understand why. Beautiful stuff.

"180 feet up an 850 year old tree". Not 850 feet up. Don't forget to read!

20,000 people took up trees. That is impressive. I can see the wonder of climbing a tree. They grow so tall and majestic. Thanks for sharing!
