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.

Skiing at Crater Lake with the Oregon Nordic Club

Crater Lake is one of the snowiest inhabited places in America, receiving an average of 44 feet of snow per year. The lake is about five miles in diameter and is almost 2,000 feet deep at the deepest point. At the rim, the elevation is about 7,000 feet with a very steep slope down to the lake. On our ski trip during the first weekend in March, nighttime low temperatures were in the upper 20s and daytime highs were slightly above freezing. Snow was in the forecast every day.

Steve took a great photo of George with his phone when we started skiing on Saturday morning. Yvonne is behind George in the black outfit. We left Portland Friday afternoon at 4:30 and enjoyed a potluck supper on the bus. We arrived at our hotel in Prospect a little before 10:30 p.m. on Friday night.

Skiing on the Teacup Lake trails

After disappointing snowfalls so far this winter, we finally skied for the first time this season on February 2nd up at Teacup Lake. These trails are maintained by the Oregon Nordic Club. The 20 kilometer trail network is groomed for skating and classic skiing. After skiing for almost two hours, we took a break in the large cabin that is heated by a wood stove. We love Teacup Lake. It’s only 64 miles from home! More information on these trails is on the ski club’s web site:   www.teacupnordic.org/.
