Doogie's class had a field trip today to the Whitman Mission and Fort Walla Walla. I was lucky enough to be able to go with them. We had a good time even though the bus driver did cut our time a little shorter than what it was supposed to be. I promised Doogie that we would make a trip out with the whole family and really take our time touring the Mission and Fort. This is a Douglas Fir that Doogie is standing in front of. It is from the Mt Baker National Forest in the Cascade Mountains. It is was cut down in 1970 and according to the growth rings the tree germinated approximately in the year 1200!
