Today's submission was taken in late October, 2002 near Klamath, CA. Terry and I had taken a driving trip to the Western US, taking Momma and Daddy with us.

While touring in Northern CA, we naturally had to visit the huge redwood forests. We were all enchanted by the trees. At the famous 'Drive-Thru Tree' in Klamath, we also found this restroom which had been hewn from the stump of an old redwood. It was quite amazing! Actually had a working toilet and sink in it!

Terry, being the natural clown that he was, HAD to have his picture taken with it! I asked if he was quite sure he didn't want me to take the picture from inside?! Surprisingly, his answer was 'No'!

Happy memories of times spent with both him and my parents. The pictures from our trips together are priceless and the memories they inspire even more so!

Thanks for dropping by today.

Sweet memories are a balm to the hurting heart! I've been to Yosemite and sequoia/King's canyon NP's and the giant sequoias are humbling!
