We stopped here as it was next to the One Log House. We went into the gift shop and the lady at the register completely ignored us. We admired the tree, snapped a few pics, and got back on the road again.

This is a great photo opportunity! The tree is just huge - it is 1800 years old, 245 feet tall and 24 feet in diameter! There are also chainsaw carvings of animals here as well.

Point of fact: At 1,800 years, this tree is about as old as Christianity. There isn't really a whole lot to see; like so many of the roadside attractions in this area, it's basically just a weird-looking tree with a giant gift shop attached to...More
