Drive Through Tree.
Following signs on the "Avenue of the Giants" through Hubboldt Redwoods State Park we found the Chandelier Tree in Leggett, California. Trudi fit easily through the 6' wide, 6'9" tall opening. I wonder how many SUV drivers are disappointed. This magnificent tree is approximately 2,400 years old, 315 ft high, and 21 ft in diameter. The park covers 53,000 acres of forest including 17,000 acres of redwoods.
