Epic driftwood: Monster tree washes ashore
Flooding, high tides and blasting winds worked together to land a massive drift log taller than a single-story house.

Check out the size of that thing!
We have driftwood where I live in Portland, Maine, but nothing like what washes ashore near Washington state's Olympic National Park, where this photo was taken. The tree most likely fell into a river after flooding and floated out to sea. High tides and strong wind then pushed it back on shore.
It should be noted that the woman standing in front of the tree is six feet tall.
