If you live in Columbia, you must know McBaine’s 350-year-old bur oak know to most as the Big Tree.
The Big Tree has been a landmark in Boone County for generations. Some people go there during the weekend to appreciate its beauty, and others visit the tree to get rid of their stress.
To truly embrace its beauty, you should take some time and visit the big oak tree in the near future, because fall leaves add elegance to it.
Here are some activities that you can try on your next visit:
- Bring your camera to take creative pictures.
The tree stands in a broad field with no high buildings to obstruct your view. If you’re a photography enthusiast, the tree offers a unique beauty for photos. If you just want to go there for fun, taking photos with the magestic tree and your friends is really sweet. Use your imagination, and let the Big Tree bring a surprise to your lens.
The photo was taken a dusk when the light was fantastic. The open views are so great, get creative and try to achieve an image in silhouette with your camera.
- Watch the starry sky over the tree.
Night offers a different view at the tree. All the stars twinkle in the sky, as if they are whispering to the tree. Most people visit the tree during the daytime and miss the breathtaking beauty of the tree during the nighttime.
If you drive to the tree, you can just park beneath its branches. Turn on some music in your car, and just watch the tree and sky. It’s almost like time stops, and you can almost hear the tree talking quietly to the sky. Sometimes, you can catch a falling star as an added surprise.
- Dance around the tree with your friends.
If you want to do more than just look, you can also interact with the tree more dynamically. Share your little secrets or sing song to the tree, she will always listen.
My friends often bring their favorite music and just dance around the tree. The beautiful scenery and open land around the tree make the perfect dance floor. But, be careful not dance in the middle of the road. Traffic is not busy there, but cars do pass through.
