Our web site

Welcome! This site has pictures of our favorite adventure travel trips. After he began editing the web site for the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse, George realized that it would be very helpful to take a class on web site design. George began working on this site in the spring of 2010 when he took a class at Oakton Community College 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 building a web site about bicycle trips.

Cycle Oregon

3 cyclists with Mt Adams in background

In early September, George was one of the CCC volunteers at Cycle Oregon. The year's route featured "The Magnificent Seven:" Adams, Hood, Jefferson, Washington, and The Three Sisters. During the week, George cleaned bikes and also enjoyed two days of bicycling through spectacular scenery.

Paddle Oregon

Paddling group on river

In late August, we canoed 98 miles during our five day trip on the Willamette River. This annual event, with about 150 paddlers this year, is very well organized. Paddling the Willamette takes you through scenic forests and farm country. We saw several bald eagles. The land along the river did not have many houses until the last day after we passed Newberg.

Bryce Canyon National Park

Hikers on Queens Garden Trail

In late July, we camped at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. The park has over 65 miles of hiking trails through colorful rock formations. Weathering and erosion created large spires called hoodoos. The picture on the left is from our hike on the Queens Garden Trail.
