If it really houses this tree

it is like a wonder of the natural world, and here in California no less.



I need to go on a road trip some day up through Northern California

Your instincts are good. The Bristlecone Pines (http://www.goldengatephoto.com/WestUS/bristlecone.html) are a phenomenal place to visit. And the road trip should include taking route 395 further north to Mono Lake with a side trip to Bodie:

The Eastern side of the Sierra's are gorgeous and cut thru Yosemite if you haven't before.

Second the recommendation about the Sierras and Yosemite. I can't wait to get back there. And thanks for the other recs.
