Christy has wanted to see the giant redwoods since she was a (cute) little schoolgirl singing:
“From the redwood forest to the gulfstream waters,

Finally, she made it…giddy as that little schoolgirl from (so very, very, very) long ago. (Who’s writing this post?! There should only be one “very!”)
And the children who recently finished their botany studies were just as enthusiastic (and significantly more photogenic).
What an amazing learning experience and real-life application of their studies!
It’s really ridiculous to try to take pictures of the botanical giants, as you can tell by Christy’s disappointing panorama pics:
