Mother Earth's Christmas tree

Not much on decorations, but wow, what a tree. This one has seen a lot of history. From Facebook so couldn't find a link to the original photographer but he apparently said this about it:
But back to the trees, which give the Olympic Peninsula its quiet aura. This Bigleaf Maple, an open-grown ancient, represents to me all that I love about trees, with its giant, spreading, moss-and-fern blanketed limbs. The mossy giant has patiently posed for my camera numerous times, and this is my favorite color portrait.
