It would seem, Suzan, that you and I are both thinking about cars today. Not knowing much about the subject, my best guess for your photo is that it might have been taken in around 1920...give or take 10 years. But it absolutely must have been taken in California if the perch is any evidence at all.

But what I want to know is how did they get those cars up there?

Having been luckey enough to have seen trees that big (well, it isn't that hard, but I consider myself luckey) its a really weird experience. You almost don't think you're in a forest but instead walking among huge oddly-colored pillars.

Those certainly are old cars. I think the right one has headlights... when did that start up?

Default Tree Bridge

The tree bridge is a redwood that was perhaps 800 years old before it was felled. I once slepted under tree in Canada estimated to be 600 years old. It was then I realized I was a mere murmer of a compression wave in the cosmic fugue.

Circa 1920's, California redwood forest.

Yep, 20s and the phenomenon noted was very common back then when the trees were viewed as oddities to be toyed with rather than awesome feats of nature. I recall see pictures/prints of holes dug thru these trees with a road for cars or buggies to pass through.

This used to be the road into Yosemite National Park, and yes you had to drive through a tree tunnel as well. In 1928 my mom and dad were sophmores in college and went with friends (in the 2 cars) rented a cabin (I have those pictures too) probably for a weekend.
