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.

Paddle Oregon

Paddle Oregon

We enjoyed our sixth Paddle Oregon during the second week in August. This trip is very well organized. Camping gear is transported between campsites so that you don't have to paddle a fully loaded canoe or kayak. The caterer provides delicious meals. Evening programs include musicians, presentations, and movies one night. We have especially enjoyed paddling with mostly the same group during the last three years.

Our North Cascades Ten Day Loop

During our July car trip, we visited Yvonne's brother and his wife in Seattle for two days, visited their daughter, son-in-law, and new grandson near Mt Baker, camped five nights in the North Cascades, visited Stehekin, and completed our drive home through the Columbia River Gorge. We loved our two-day stay at the North Cascades Lodge in Stehekin. Most visitors to Stehekin arrive by ferry because Stehekin has no roads leading out of the area. For hiking, backbacking, and enjoying beautiful scenery in a remote location, this is the place to go! In the photo, we are on the bank of the Nooksack River at our campsite in the Silver Fir Campground north of Mt Baker. Click the photo for a link to more pictures.

Exploring San Diego with a Road Scholar Group

Hotel Del Coronado

We had a great time in San Diego during five days in early April. The Spanish and Mexican heritage manifests itself in buildings in Balboa Park and the Santa Fe depot downtown. The huge harbor and variety of climate zones around San Diego are fascinating. A long coast line with mostly warm and sunny days support San Diego's claim to "America's Finest City."

Cross-country Skiing in the Methow Valley

We enjoyed four days of skiing in the Methow Valley during mid-February. This year we stayed in Mazama at the west end of the 30 km Methow Community Trail leading to Winthrop. A ski trail was just outside our front door. There was plenty of snow and temperatures warmed into the upper 20's by late afternoon. Click the photo of Yvonne for a link to more pictures.
