driving around the Quinault area of the Olympic Peninsula

I have really come to enjoy roadside attractions as I have gotten older. I must admit that seeing three potentially "tall" cedars on one road was a big confusing to me. How can they all be big or tall? And why do they need a sign?
 on the second hottest day of the year we decided to go see this tree. There was only this sign.
 do you have deep roots? Most of the trees on this trail did.
 nothing like hiking over these things with a 3 yr old, a 5 yr old and an 8 yr old who doesn't walk. Let me tell you, that we almost gave up a few times. The kids were doing great but we doubted that we were ever going to find the big cedar!
 And then we found it. Sadly, it has been dead for awhile now. It is currently a "host" for many other trees.
 It kind of looks like it was three trees that grew together. And, though that is a guess as there were no signs indicating anything about this tree.

It is completely hollowed out on the inside too, as you can see
