Our web site

Welcome! Our site has pictures of our favorite adventure travel trips. After George began editing the web site for the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse, he realized that a class on web site design would be very helpful. George began working on this site in the spring of 2010 when he took a class called Building a Web Page. The class project was to build a web site using HTML and a text editor. The bicycle trips before 2010 are from his class project. We enjoy updating this site to share pictures from recent trips.

Yosemite National Park

View of Yosemite Valley

This was our first trip to Yosemite and our third trip with Road Scholar. Waterfalls were bursting out in full force and the park was busy but not crowded during the second week in April. We enjoyed learning about the park on the first day before heading out on visits to the park during the next four days. Road Scholar made the logistics easy.

Cross-country Skiing in Glacier National Park

In February, we enjoyed a trip to the Izaak Walton Inn with a group of 21 skiers from the Oregon Nordic Club. We arrived by train on Friday morning and skied groomed trails near the inn until our rooms were ready. On Saturday, George managed to keep up with a group skiing in the back country near Marias Pass which was challenging without back-country skis or much back-country skiing experience. On Sunday, George easily skied a much longer ski outing on Going to the Sun Highway starting near Lake MacDonald. Back-country skis were slower in established tracks on the unplowed highway. After skiing, we enjoyed having dinner at the inn and watching the Olympics downstairs in the bar. We all had rooms in the inn, but the inn also has cabins, cabooses, and even a locomotive available for overnight accommodations. We left Monday night after dinner on the overnight train to Portland. Amtrak was on time both ways.
