Wednesday Postcard: Yosemite National Park

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features the California Tunnel Tree located in California’s Yosemite National Park:

Photographer – C. Loberg

This giant sequoia was cut in 1895 to allow stagecoaches to pass through the center of the tree. A mature tree can reach a height of about 300 feet/ 91 meters and more than 50 feet/ 15 meters around!
