Travel & Events

This section will be your ticket, a jumping off point for those of you who are interested in travel, either in person or vicariously, to places that exhibit beauty in landscape, flora and fauna. It will lead you to other pages that display the geography, plants and animals, as well as the local 'flavor' that some have had the good fortune to experience, and now share with all of us.

Most pages linked to here will not change much over time, but will remain as resources for those considering travel to, or just interested in learning about these beautiful places. However, any page may be added to or supplemented with information and photographs from others who have visited there. Multiple perspectives about a given place can prove invaluable, and worth more than any travel guide. Often, personal experience is far more important than what can be found in a book.

I welcome any contributions to this section. Contact us if you have any questions or need assistance in preparing your writing, photos or miscellaneous items (maps, charts, etc.).

Thanks, and enjoy the trip.

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”

–  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover.                                                                                                                                   –  Mark Twain

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.                                               –  John Muir

In wilderness is the preservation of the world.                                                         –  Henry David Thoreau
