Photographer's Note

Redwoods are very hardy as far as their survival goes, their bark is few inches thick and thus they can survive moderate fire. This particular tree in Klamath was spared from logging and in mid 1960s got struck by lightning. As it was damaged the owner decided to curve the base of the tree to make it a drive through attraction. This tree is approximately 300 years old and about 313 feet tall. A full size car can easily drive through the base of this tree. There are two drive through redwood trees in California, one is in Legget and that one is under National Park Service,this one in Klamath is privately owned and maintained.
Sorry about the quality of the photo, as I have mentioned before weather was not that co-operative.
