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.

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.

Cross-country Skiing in the Methow Valley at the end of 2017

George and Yvonne on ski trail

During the last week in December, George and Yvonne enjoyed four days of skiing on America's largest ski trail system. Methow Trails, a non-profit organization that recently celebrated it's 40th anniversary, maintains over 200 kilometers of groomed trails. We were part of a ten person group from the Oregon Nordic Club that stayed in two condos during our five nights in Winthrop, WA. Click on this image for additional pictures.

Paddle Oregon

Paddle Oregon started a week later in 2017 so that we could be on the Willamette River for the solar eclipse. We love this thip! Paddle Oregon features five days on the river with pre-arranged campsites, luggage shuttle, and delicious meals. It also includes programs on plants and animals (mostly birds) that are common along the river. Click on this image for additional pictures.
