I was so sad to turn the TV on to breaking news of the Senator was on fire. My dad took me to see this tree as a child and I have taken my children. I hope they find out what happened.

I love the tree. It is so great what you are doing. One day I would love to travel and see the big trees. When my kids get older I may do that. Until then your photos give me a chance to see them. Thanks
