Another tree diversion. This is the Octopus Tree, in Cape Meares Scenic Viewpoint, south of Tillamook. It is a Sitka Spruce, with a base of 10 feet in diameter supporting all of these arms, most of which are large enough to be a single tree. Don't miss the tiny Christy and Anders in the lower left corner to give you a sense of scale. A Native American legend about the tree says that it was shaped this way to hold the canoes of the chief's dead family members.
