Betty’s Trip to the Redwoods in Photos

In my last blog I introduced you to Betty Thompson, a 66-year-old woman from Georgia with cerebral palsy, who was about to realize her lifelong dream of seeing the redwoods. In June, Betty and her friends embarked on a weeklong road trip from Los Angeles to Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Follow her journey north from San Francisco to Humboldt Redwoods State Park in the gallery below.
