Our web site
Welcome! This site has pictures of our favorite adventure travel trips. George began working on the 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 are from the class project, except for the Michigan trip in 2010. What started out as a need to learn how to edit his Rotary Club web site turned into an opportunity to share pictures of our adventure trips.
Hiking in the Columbia Gorge in late October
It felt good to get out and enjoy beautiful scenery on a sunny day in late October. The largest waterfall in Oregon is only 34 miles from our house. Our drive to the waterfall on the Historic Columbia River Highway passed by several scenic vistas overlooking the Columbia River and many hiking trails.
After our hike at the waterfall, we stopped for lunch at McMenamins Edgefield Manor in Troutdale. This 74 acre complex used to be the Multnomah County Poor Farm. Now it includes lodging, restaurants, a winery, a brewery, outdoor concerts in the summer, and much more. A great place to visit!
George’s cross-country bike trip
George returned home in early August from the PAC Tour Northern Transcontinental, a 32 day bike ride across the country. This group of almost 40 well–trained cyclists averaged 112 miles per day including some very big climbs in the mountain states.
