This motorhome was made from a previously fallen redwood donated by the Pacific Lumber Co. Using a one-man saw Kellogg cut off a 22 foot section of the 11 foot diameter tree to build his Travel-Log. He used cables and the Nash Quad to fill the huge log to the work sit. Then he and two helpers began shaping the exterior.IMG 2646

We stopped at the Shrine Drive Thru Tree to drive through it and also see the two houses made from redwood trees.

Apparently banana slugs are everywhere in this area.  Every gift shop had stuffed animal ones for sale.
