So we had to drive by here just to see the this tree. It is the largest tree I've ever seen. If in the area, you need to see this!

This majestic tree used to mark the place where the 101 highway stopped at State Street for a traffic light...and traffic would back up dangerously. At least while stopped at that intersection one could get a great look at the Moreton Bay Fig, grand dame of Santa Barbara which set the tone for the leisurely and tranquil feeling that was Old Santa Barbara. I was in a fender bender back in the day as traffic rushed over the hill coming into town, and hit cars at a full stop. That was back in 1966. Now with the freeway bypass, you have to seek out this magnificent specimen, but it is worth the search.
It marks a kinder and gentler time.

The tree is surprisingly big. I ate figs the first time in 2017. I really like it. I like the tree too!

....it has a beautiful canopy, amazing roots and a good back story. Thriving for its age, may it live long and prosper. A top tourist stop....not really.....we drove past on our Segway Tour.

Hard to believe this tree is over 100 years old. We drive by this whenever we are in Santa Barbara. A must see!
