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.

Spring trip to Big Sur, Redwoods, and the Oregon Coast

In late March, we began a twelve day camping trip staying mostly along the California and Oregon coast. We drove as far south as San Simeon, California. Driving through Big Sur on Highway One, both southbound and northbound, was one of the trip's highlights. This two lane road along the rugged Pacific coast is one of the most scenic drives that we have ever experienced. Another highlight was camping for three nights in the world's largest old-growth redwood forest about 200 miles north of San Francisco. During the last two nights, we stayed in the historic Sylvia Beach Hotel overlooking the ocean in Newport, Oregon. The hotel is named for Sylvia Beach who owned a bookstore in Paris during the 20's and 30's. Every room is named after an author and decorated accordingly.

Big Sur coastline
We drove the entire length of Big Sur, over 70 miles of hills and curves on the California coast. All of the campgrounds in Big Sur were full, but we got one of the last campsites at Hearst San Simeon State Park just south of Big Sur.

Yellowstone National Park

Yvonne and George at entrance to Yellowstone

We enjoyed a week at Yellowstone in mid-February. We were with a group of twenty cross-country skiers from the Oregon Nordic Club. Yellowstone brings together great scenery, the most large animals in the lower 48 states, and a wide variety of cross-country ski trails.
