I visited this northern California park recently. It might be a little tacky to some, but the traffic through the tree was constant. The van in the third picture seemed to barely fit and the motorcycle rider made me laugh.

We drove through the coastal Redwwoods a few weeks ago, but not through the tree. So I double enjoy your beautiful photographs.

I love a bit tacky!!what fun.

I am not a fan of this sort of thing, as really, the structural integrity of the tree HAS to have been comprimised. BUT, having said that, it just goes to show how old and large this tree is!

Thanks for sharing!

Mines up as well at AussiePomm - Holmenkollen

Have a great day!!

Indrani said...

That must be an amazing experience!
Great shots.

Sukhmandir Kaur: Those giant redwoods were impressive and I hope you enjoyed the area as much as I did.

caite: Haha, I always wanted to go through one and see one up close.

Bernie: The opening was carved out in the 1930's so it has survived. I think this is just one of three such openings in the area.

Indrani: It was, thanks!

Very interesting. A large truck doesn't seem to ride in the tree but my small car can drive in it.

Has to be the most unusual 'drive-thru' I've ever seen!

We did the same park years ago. I thought it was fun seeing how big the trees can get. Great shots.

Emm in London said...

Oh, that is cute! I really like that. I'm really impressed that the tree survived!

colleen said...

I've always wanted to see that! I've seen the big redwoods but none you could drive through. I hope the tree isn't hurt by it.

I remember doing this as a kid. My Dad got such a kick out of driving the family station wagon through it. Now, I suppose it isn't quite as novel, but still as much fun.

Filip and Kristel said...

Never seen this, is it possible to pass with a Ferrari or an other car which is rather wide?

Greetings,
Filip

Don't think I drove through the tree. Looks like it's particularly fun on a motorcycle or bicycle.

What a poor tree being operated on the abdomen.

EastCoastLife said...
