This is one of the largest Sitka spruce trees in the world … and is quite accessible. It is only a short walk from the road along Lake Quinault. So, it gets a lot of visitors. I was there as a child … (that’s me being held by my father). Since 1950, the shrubs have grown up around the base of the tree… this was taken on the back side of the photo above.

Awesome, was there in August, and had my daughter climb up and pose. Thanks for bringing back the memories! Marcus
Wonderful photos, and I especially enjoyed the older one.
while we were there some out of country tourists asked me to take their photo in from of it. When I showed them that photo on my phone they laughed hard and thought it was something.
Wow! Enjoyed seeing you as a child there as well.
