While in Lebanon, we visited the cedar forest at The Garden of the Gods. Many of the trees are hundreds of years old with graceful branches. It was a spectacularly beautiful and peaceful place. Rather than taking down the dead cedars, a French artist carved many of them with faces and one with Jesus on the cross. We saw the tree that is the image on the Flag of Lebanon and the image on the Lebanese passport. Some of the trees were so large that when hollowed by time, two people could stand inside of them. It was a memorable day.
