Car drives through opening cut in Wawona Tree in 1929
The Wawona Tree has an ongoing story that includes the 1881 event when a tunnel was cut through it. The sign at base of the tree reads: "26 feet; height 227 feet, roadway built in 1875." The tree, which fell in 1969, can be visited in the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.
