Bur Oak on South River Road

This old bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) is on South River Road about a mile east of Granville Bridge.  Looks to be 4 to 6 feet thick.  I once found an old tourist map of Tippecanoe County at the library that mentioned this tree along with more well known places like Prophet's Rock and Fort Ouiatenon.  The map claimed the tree was a landmark back in the day River Road was an Indian trail.  Well maybe so, who really knows.
