One Hell Of A Big Tree

I believe this a Kapok tree. I happeneded upon it yesterday while out for an extended walk around the Itzimna area. I have noticed a number of other large specimens around town.

I have since read that the Kapok tree can grow to 150 feet tall and 9 feet in diameter. The trees were considered sacred by indigenous people.

Note: 2/20/06 I have removed the verbiage where I had mixed up the concepts of diameter and circumference. Duh!
