Lee Vining's Treasured Tree

If you ever drive through Lee Vining you might want to stop behind Nicely's Restaurant and check out this Sequoia.

It is located right across the street from the elementary school.

It is in the parking lot behind Nicely's.

Lee Vining's children see the tree every day and I am sure they feel this tree is special.

The children of Lee Vining know this Sequoia as the town's Christmas tree.

The electrical supply system is quite elaborate.

The most interesting aspect about the tree is who planted this beautiful Sequoia? It turns out it is here today because of the great grandfather of HST's own Mal Hombre de La Villa del Norte Cottonwood Canyon, Matt. :nod:

If you would like to visit this tree and need directions just Google map this location in Lee Vining...

... or, just look for a towering sequoia from HWY 395. :D

Who is this in the parking lot?

I was at Nicely's on the 16th. I guess I just missed you.
