Ancient Dartmoor Trees

If you go down to the woods today.....
....you might find a particularly appealing hound.
The other day I joined my Dad for a wander on the moor to see some very old trees.
I know...I know...but the scenery was quite nice.
Wistman's Wood is a remnant of Dartmoor's ancient oak woodland, full of mossy boulders, lichen, ferns and gnarled (slightly frightening) trees. Think 'Lord of the Rings' and you're pretty much there.
Dad seemed to be enjoying himself - Some of these trees must be nearly as old as him !!!
