Travel Photos

This website is where I post travel photos from my various travels. It is a random sampling of some of my favorite pictures and places, rather that a travelogue type of format. I prefer this site to be a photographic glimpse of places in general. I hope you enjoy. ***NOTE: I don't update this blog frequently any longer. If you'd like to see more of my photos you can check out my Flickr site here: My Travel Photos

I took this shot along US 2 in the small town of Douglas, Washington, which is located in the central part of the state. Posted by Picasa

This picture of Quebec City, Quebec, was taken from in front of our hotel. It shows the Historic Lower Town in the foreground, with a Norweigan Cruise Ship docked behind it. To the right is the ferry that shuttles back and forth across the St. Lawrence River to the town of Levis. (Scanned Print) Posted by Picasa

Regent Street in London, England is one of the most impressive city streets I've walked along. It is a solid wall of wonderful buildings, lined with upscale shops, and bustling with pedestrians, busses and taxis. Posted by Picasa

Fort Clatsop

Fort Clatsop, the fort which Lewis and Clark built after they reached the Pacific Ocean, burned to the ground Monday evening. It is not a terribly historic lost, since it is a reconstruction which was built in 1955. It was constructed using modern methods, much differently than the crude fort that was hastily constructed in the rainy month of December 1805. Plus, it wasn't even built on the original site. That location has been lost to history. However, it was a much visited attraction, and it did give you an excellent first hand look at what life was like for the Corps of Discovery that winter, far from civilization. Plus, this is the 200th Anniversary of the expedition, and many events were planned for the Fort in the coming months. So it is an ill timed loss to say the least. The good news is the Park Service has already said it will rebuilt the Fort. There have already been offers to donate timber and volunteer labor. But this is the Government we're talking about here. Lets see how long it takes to built Fort Clatsop in 2005. I guarantee you it will take quite a bit longer than it did in 1805. Here are a few pictures from my visit to Fort Clatsop in 2003.

This view shows one side of the fort. It was a small structure that was only built to last through the winter of 1805-06. Posted by Picasa

The interior of the fort showed just how sparce the living quarters were. Posted by Picasa

Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse near Daytona Beach, Florida is one of the nicest lighthouses to visit in the Southeast. On the grounds are not only the lighthouse but numerous outbuildings that tell the full story of this historic lighthouse. Posted by Picasa

The city of Trail, British Columbia has many of these covered sidewalks. They are in effect snowsheds for pedestrians walking up and down the steep streets in the winter. Posted by Picasa
