California Storm Claims Pioneer Cabin Tree In Arnold, California

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.

 

 

I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!

 

 

Today’s subject: Some sad news…

 

About six weeks ago I visited Calavaras Big Trees State Park in Arnold, California. One of the highlights of that visit was seeing The Pioneer Cabin Tree aka Tunnel Tree.

 

This tree was so notable it even made international news.

So sad to think of this beauty as gone.  😦

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 69 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 67 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

    WOW! I feel like this old photo has been in history books in schools across the country for decades. How sad it is no longer there. And how lucky you were able to see it one last time so recently!
