You've heard of California's renowned redwoods, but did you know about its sequoias? While redwood trees stand as the tallest trees in the world, sequoias are the largest. The biggest sequoia in the world, a tree fondly known as General Sherman, can be found in the Sunshine State's Sequoia National Park. Believe it or not, General Sherman is 275 feet tall, 102 feet wide and weighs 2.7 million pounds.
This unusual tunnel can be seen in California's Sequoia National Park. The drive is cut through the tree trunk of a Sequoia which fell in 1937. Instead of removing it from the road, the park administration decided to cut a tunnel in it. It's 5.18 m. (17 ft.) wide and 2.44 m. (8 ft.) high.
