Chandelier Tree

Maybe this wouldn’t happen in today's more conservation-minded world, but some 80 years ago, when Charlie Underwood was looking to create a roadside attraction on his family's property 175 miles north of San Francisco, he carved a car-sized, drive-thru hole in a giant coast redwood. Dubbed the Chandelier Tree, this 2,400-year-old living giant remains a must-see attraction in Northern California. For $5, tree-lovers can motor through the titanic trunk and picnic among the many other redwoods on the property, now a 200-acre park.
