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.

Hosting Nozomi for six days in Portland

Yvonne, Nozomi, and George on Macleay Trail

After a nine-hour non-stop flight from Tokyo, Nozomi was busy sightseeing. We hiked the Macleay Trail in Northwest Portland. Nozomi bought her blue jacket at Columbia Sportware's flagship store downtown. We also hiked at Multinomah Falls and experienced strong wind in the Columbia Gorge. Around town, we visited the Farmer's Market at Portland State, saw the mural at the Community Cycling Center, stopped for coffee at Cup & Bar on NE MLK, enjoyed a snack at Salt & Straw Ice Cream on NE Alberta Street, and walked across Portland's newest bridge which does not allow cars. Nozomi cooked miso soup, egg custard, and okonomiyaki for delicious dinner with our niece Liz. Click on this picture for additional pictures.

The Methow Valley Cross-country Ski Trails, with 120 miles of trails, is one of America's largest cross-country ski trail networks. Warming shelters and places serving warm food are located along some of the trails. Our group of twelve from the Oregon Nordic Club stayed in two condos in Winthrop, Washington. We cooked delicious meals. George enjoyed skiing down the big hills on the trail leading from Sun Mountain back to Winthrop. Click on this picture for additional pictures.
