    Once known as the "Tunnel Tree", this massive sequoia hosted walk-throughs for millions of visitors to Yosemite's Mariposa Grove, home to the world's most massive living objects. Another towering tree now serves as the tunnel for tourist snaps.

      Thanks. These trees' roots systems are amazing. Super complex and yet they don't go very deep, just far and wide. To live so long they are ecologically the most vulnerable things in the forest.
