Trees of Mystery was absolutely one of my family’s favorite attractions when I was growing up, and even before I was born — see my previous posts, Memory Monday, Week 9 and Memory Monday, Week 10. It’s been decades now since I last visited the place, and it’s evolved and only gotten better (I’m seriously craving a ride on the SkyTrail, which didn’t exist back in the 1960s when I was there) but I’m happy just knowing this particular tourist spot is still in operation.
Since I’ve already shared images of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox from the 1950s, I figured — for those readers who haven’t been lucky enough to visit — I may as well offer you a more in-depth look at this family owned and operated roadside attraction — as only Huell Howser could provide.
The giant statue of Paul Bunyan greets visitors to this family run road-side attraction that has been open since the 1930’s. Join host Huell Howser as he get a tour through some of the most amazing Redwoods in California, but its not just any old walking tour where you stare up at these impossibly tall trees; its a SkyTrail, which is basically a ski lift which gets you at tree-top level giving you an amazing new view.
