The question is WHERE is the tree. It is likely not the worlds tallest, but it is certainly one of its older residents. So the answer Z, is nope.


Kim and Krysten, what the heck are YOU looking at.?

Warm Sushi, but the kids are 8 and 10 (in the picture anyway), they like Spongebob and the tree is NOT in California. Smooch! Try again.

Give the man a prize! It is indeed Cathedral Grove. We were there in 2004 and given a tour by my brother who lives on the island. He was telling us a few years ago they had a really bad storm that knocked down a bunch of the trees, very sad. Its still one of the coolest places on earth though.

You're up phinz.

I took this abstract(ish) picture on one of my trips in the past year. What is the official name of this "building" and where is it located?
