  1. Wow, Joshua, you have chosen three excellent landmarks! I really enjoyed reading your post and I learned a lot about each of the three. In fact, I had no idea that the tree atop One Tree Hill had been destroyed twice. I sometimes go walking around the park at the base of the hill but I just thought that the tree had been destroyed once before it was removed. You have taught me something. Thanks!

    Cheers, Rachel
