Hello

and thank you for sharing these very cool pictures.

How small this giant car looks underneath the sequoia trees. <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: --> <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

It looks like the photos were not taken in Sequoia N.P. , but in its neighborhood, in Yosemite N.P..
The so called "Wawona (Tunnel) Tree" stood (until the late 1960s) in Yosemite N.P. In my opinion, one of the most beautyful places on earth.

Happy New Year!

Matt

Fantastic photos indeed !

A Wikipedia web search on the Wonona tunnel tree states that in 1881 the large tunnel was carved in this Giant Sequoia starting from an exsisting forrest fire scar by two men who were paid $75 for the carving job.
The tree started to lean almost immediately after the tunnel was carved.
This tree stood in the Mariposa Grove at Yosemite National Park.
It was 227 foot tall & 95 foot in circumference. Sadly it fell due to heavy snow load in 1969; and was said to be approx 2300 years old at that time.
The remains of this fallen Giant Sequoia remain on the ground to this very day.
