The Davey Tree Expert Company P.O. Box 5193 Kent, Ohio 44240-5193 HIKING A TRAIL NAMED AFTER THE 'MAN IN BLACK' Eric Haskins, team lead coordinator mailroom, corporate administrative services, traveled to Tanzania, Africa, on a 10-day mission trip to minister to children with his church Victory Christian Center-Warren Campus. Haskins was a part of the SOS Kids Adventure Ministry Team. Their mission consisted of loving and preaching Jesus to school age children in Tanzania. They ministered to the children of Arusha through festivals that included food, games Lori Murphy, consulting arborist, Davey Resource Group, took a trip to Folsom Prison in Folsom, California, to hike the Johnny Cash Trail. Murphy hiked the 2.5-mile trail with her brother and her two granddaughters. Famously, Johnny Cash performed at Folsom Prison, the maximum- security facility northeast of Sacramento, on Jan. 13, 1968, and recorded the concert live for his At Folsom Prison album. and a drama performance. During one of his free days, Haskins had the opportunity to go on a safari and visit Tarangire National Park, where this photo was taken. "The best part of the safari was the chance to see the animals of Africa up close and personal," he said. "I hoped to get an up-close glimpse of the lions but was only able to see them from a long MISSION TRIP, SAFARI & TREE OF LIFE DAVEY AROUND THE WORLD distance. Also, having the opportunity to see a Baobab, the Tree of Life, was awesome." "It's a beautiful hike around Folsom Prison," Murphy said. During her hike, Murphy spotted a blue oak acorn and leaves with pink oak galls. The blue oak is one of the native oak trees growing all along the Johnny Cash Trail. The bridge in the background of the photo is called "Robbers Ravine Bridge," which crosses a deep ravine named for the outlaws that used it to hideout after robbing stagecoaches in the 1800s.
