Super Moon

This spring the moon presented itself in a much larger sense as it was closer to the earth and won’t be this close again for 18 years.



These were taken at dusk as the moon rose from Veterans Park on the western end of the 7 mile bridge in the Florida Keys.  No wind and a beautiful warm evening  March 19th 2011.

Fort McAllister – Savannah, Georgia 2011

As I haven’t posted in a long time and we are moving down the road again, I thought I would post a few pictures that I find interesting.  These were taken from our campsite at Fort McAllister State Park

Sadly, we left old friends, but not without having had a great time rehashing old stories and times. The trip to Boise and McCall was our start on our dream journey to see as many of the National Parks as we can. Our first park on that journey is Yellowstone National Park.

One thing I have always wanted to do was to fly fish in one of the western rivers that one reads about in all the fishing magazines. WestTrip,Week3 500 Yep…..That’s me in the Yellowstone river tossing a fly out there for all those hungry cutthroat trout that weren’t very appreciative of my technique!!! I have now waded for trout in the famous Yellowstone River in Yellowstone National Park.

We had arranged to meet friends Matt and Alice from Sunshine Key in Florida who had decided to join us on our quest of the National Parks. That’s us at the Continental Divide in Yellowstone Park.

WestTrip,Week3 275 The Park is beyond what we expected with its natural beauty and the animals. We no sooner arrived through the West Gate when we spotted an eagle and herd of Elk.

WestTrip,Week3 165 WestTrip,Week3 169The biggest animals we saw regularly were the Buffalo…TATONKA!!WestTrip,Week3 301

The beauty of land is unbelievable and we took picture after picture from the northern end of the park with higher elevations and some of the upper stretches of the yellowstone… WestTrip,Week3 658
