We were in sort of a rush driving through Lassen Volcanic National Park because we were coming from the north of the park and our motel was in the south. And our destination was a tiny town with only one restaurant that closed at 8. And it was a little after 7 and we were […]
Driving down the scenic Hwy. 101 between the north and south parts of Redwood National Park. There seems to be fog here most of the time, so why not just go with it. There is some color, but it’s so muted by the fog, I decided to process the shot in black and white. For […]
The drive to see the vaunted Crater Lake National Park was interrupted before it got started. We’d stayed north of the park the night before and planned on getting an early start to see the lake before the sun was too high. Unfortunately the drought in the West had other plans. The route into the […]
Our visits to cities along the Rhône River valley in southern France left us wanting more. After one day in Lyon, for example, Tom was leading us to the Alliance Francaise school to check out possibilities for enrolling in French classes. A Viking River Cruise, called Portraits of Southern France, was really just a teaser. […]
We’d planned our whole day–and drive–around getting to Crater Lake National Park late morning. But as usual, we dawdled over coffee and got a late start. About 50 miles down the road, there was a flashing sign “North Entrance to Crater Lake National Park closed due to fire. South Entrance open.” The only problem was […]
A very interesting beach indeed as it was littered with drift logs from the nearby forest. As logs fall and end up in various rivers, they make their way to the sea, only to be battered into gray driftwood and tossed back up onto the shore at Ruby Beach. There are hundreds of them lining […]
Ok, it’s a bit of a cliche. But we drove 40 miles just to get this shot. And, I sort of think I got it. Crescent Lake at the north side of Olympic National Park pretty much lines up with east and west, so it makes a nice place to stop along the shore and […]
As I was walking along one of the hiking paths near Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, this guy was following my path just a few yards to my left. When I stopped, he stopped to nibble. Or was it the other way around. At any rate, he wasn’t too shy. When I approached him […]
Since we started this western road trip, every day has been hot and relentlessly sunny. So when we woke to a foggy, cloudy and rainy sky on the day of our trip to Mount Rainier National Park, we were optimistic that it would clear and we’d get a good look at the mountain. No such […]
As we were leaving Glacier National Park late in the evening, the sun began to set behind the mountain tops, and as it did, it illuminated McDonald Creek in the valley below the Going to the Sun Road, and the leaves on the trees on the roadside in front of us.
