“Awesome tree”

It is hard to find but worth it. It is close to train station. The roots are massive but you can't touch it

Made it a point to check this tree out and I am glad we did. Wow, huge and just a wonder. Shame on the jerks that carved their names into the enormous bark and trunk.

Adjacent to the central Amtrak station is one of the most amazing historic trees in the US. Take time to wander over esp if you have children who loved Harry Potter & Hobbits.

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.
