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.

Beautiful Gardens Close to Home

Portland's climate is ideal for growing roses. One of Portland's nicknames is the "Rose City." Every year Portland hosts a Rose festival. The Grand Floral Parade takes place in early June, and many activities are held over several weeks. The group of five photos below are from three of Portland's best-known gardens that we visited this spring. The size of these gardens ranges from about five acres to almost ten acres.

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.
