Before my honeymoon my one vacation was a week in Carbondale with my brother and sister-in-law when he was going to college at Southern Illinois University. I suppose I just never developed a wander lust because we hadn't done it. We not only didn't have the money for extensive travelling when the boys were growing, I didn't feel the desire. I now regret we didn't do more.

As we have gotten older, we have begun to travel more. We have even left North America, but there is so much to see here that I know I'll never have the time and money to photograph all of the areas I'd like. It has now gotten to the point when Pam says, "Would you like to go ..." my only response is "Can I take my camera?" Since I almost always can, my answer is always yes.


Grand Canyon - July 1998

Canada - 2002

Fall Color 2004

Whale Watching 2005

Our Australian & New Zealand Vacation taken in 2006 was our first trip we kept a journal faithfully while on the trip. It was a wonderful memorable trip that we will never forget.

Our Arctic Odyssey Expedition was taken in 2008 and gave us an opportunity to see the rugged beauty of the far north.

While Pam and I don't particularly love the cold you wouldn't know it from the vacations we choose. Our next tour was Winter Wonderland in Yellowstone in February 2011

November of 2011 saw us check off a big item on my bucket list - AFRICA

We were off to the cold again, when we went to see the start of Iditorod 2012
