she read, she saw...

This is the Friday space where I usually have my she read, she saw post.  I know many of you enjoy it as I get so much feedback from it every week.  We, the daughter and I, aren't sure how to re-work it now that she no longer lives out of state.  We are tossing around a few ideas and promise to be quick about it.

Until then, I thought you might enjoy this photo of Andrew Henry next to a giant Redwood tree.  We were driving that moving truck from Grants Pass, Oregon over to the Pacific Coastline last week and all of a sudden, we were surrounded by massive Redwoods.

It was beautiful.
We stopped the truck.
We touched the trees.
We were awed.

"Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money."  ~Cree Indian Proverb

Oh My Gosh! WOW!
I have a picture like this of Troy - only he was inside an opening of the tree - it was from our honeymoon in '96 - and it was outside San Fran - but the reaction I had to this picture was exactly the same - WOW!

Those gorgeous, gorgeous trees, and what a great shot!

Believe it or not, I recently discovered several large Redwood trees right here in Vienna.
