Not sure if this is the same tree because there were 2 or 3 of them that you could drive through. The picture was taken in 66 or 67 when my wife and I took our first vacation to YOSEMITE

If you drove through the Calaveras Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County, California, while visiting Yosemite then that's the tree.

You picture is of the Wawona Tree at Yosemite NP located in the Mariposa Grove. It fell in 1969. Age 2,100 years.

The Pioneer Cabin Tree in Big Trees SP, North Grove was estimated to be much younger. The reason this tree was chosen to be cut was it had suffered fire damage, was broken at about 150" height and was more or less hollow.
