Its so big, the photo is either of the trunk, or the top. The trunk shot with people gives the best impression.
There is another interesting tree about 100 ft from it - two trunks form about a 5' tunnel to walk under, and the two trunks form into one. I have not figured it out, nor may be able to. It could be two small trees angled over a boulder, grafted naturally, then the boulder was removed. Or, those trunks could be 2 big roots that were in a stump and the stump rotted away.
The Oregon coast range is a lovely tree viewing area.
Its a tapestry of coastal streams. The area is lush, green and cool. When its 90 in Portland, Its usually 65 (Farenhiet) or 70 at the coast -only an hour and a quarter away.
