PCH ends here, dumping onto US-101 to the Oregon border and beyond.

Just before getting on 101 is this treat:
the Drive Through Tree

I drove past it at first - it didn't look possible to drive through it.

That gave me the chance to see some beautiful chain saw sculpture that I missed the first time around.

The gatekeeper assured me that a Suburban drove through it the week
before, and he had been through it in his own Corvette. Ok, let's do it!

Quite a few scrape marks along the walls!

This was the actual clearance with the mirror!

Check the fender clearance in the mirror...
