South Boundary Shadows - Aiken, South Carolina

On the edge of the historic downtown of Aiken runs a tunnel of entangled white oaks known as South Boundary Avenue.  Some of these gentle giants are estimated to be more than one hundred years old.  I had taken this photo last fall and sadly many of these titanic beings' boughs were brought down from an ice storm that struck the area the following winter.  Although, as the wonder of nature, the trees survived this tumultuous trial and will continue to grow despite their scars from Mother Nature's wrath.

If you do ever find yourself driving along the wide boulevard streets in downtown Aiken, I recommend you turn southward and drive under the reaches of these majestic trees and follow the path the protect into the endless paddocks of South Carolina's horse country.
