I did this as a child in school. It’s one of my most beloved childhood memories. My children grew up in Arizona and didn’t have field trip opportunities like this. Made me so sad. I’m so happy the tradition carries on. ❤️

Loved when I came there as a youngster in the 70s

Such a treasure for our students, SW Washington...
