“may it never die”

Though not the oldest redwood in the forest, this large tree is over 950 years old, and is currently around 250 ft tall, though originally it was much taller. It has survived not only the ravages of time but also the 1964 flood of the area, a 1908 attempt at logging, and a direct lightning strike which removed the top 45 feet of the tree (making its original height close to 300 ft). It is from its age and the perceived hardiness to the fates that the tree derives its name. Markers are visible on the tree, denoting the heights of where the loggers' axes and the floodwaters struck the tree. Situated in the northern half of the Avenue, The Immortal Tree is easy to find, and has a large gift shop and parking area in front of it.

It's a cute hop out, hope in, stop. There is the tree, a huge burl, and a small river behind. There is also a gift shop. We did not go in.

Comes up quick. You can easily miss it if you're not looking for it.
