August 14, 2013 - Chandelier Tree











Hope you don't mind me sharing my own pics. We are on a mini vacation in the Valley of the Redwoods.

I couldn't believe our van fit through that hole. All we had to do was fold in the mirrors. We had at least a couple of inches to spare.

I think I rode in the back of a VW bus through that same tree when I was a kid.

I have also driven through that tree. Back in 1995 or so.

Cool!

Hubby and I went through prior to munchkins (oldest is 13) with a Volvo sedan that had a sun roof. I opened the sunroof and was taking pics looking up and when we got to the next sight seeing spot I checked to see how many pics were left on my roll of film.

What roll of film? I was shooting with an empty camera!

So, I told my daughter that this time I was going to tie her to the roof so she could film the drive through . . . this time I forgot the power cord and we were out of juice. She wouldn't have fit anyway.

There have been at least two "Drive-through-trees" along that stretch of Rewoods over the years.
I have a photograph of my family driving through one in a 1941 De Soto in 1949.
The roads were still under re-construction after the war and were quite a challenge.

About 1920, through a stump.

Wow, that more graphically shows the enormity of the tree!

Sadly, I have never seen it.

An interesting tidbit: it takes about 400 years for a fallen tree to become part of the forest floor.

There are at least three surviving ‘Drive-Through’ trees
all located in California, where the trees grow naturally.
There is the Leggett's Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree,
the Shrine Drive-Thru Tree in Myers Flat and the Klamath Tour Thru Tree
located North of Klamath Bridge.

Then there is the Tunnel Log along the Crescent Meadow Road in Sequoia National Park.
This cite has a few other pics of the trees that I had not seen before.
