:: Alaska August 2006 ::
These pictures are my trip to Alaska at the end of August 2006. The Alaskan coast can see 300 days of rain a year. Upon arrival Alaska had seen 3 weeks straight of rain in the Anchorage area that washed out roads and railroad track. Alaska can be depressing and extremely beautiful all the the same time. I will hope to go back there again. You can not get to the western part of the state by car. Only by boat, plane or mush it (dog sled). Some part are very much like the lower 48 others are not even close. I traveled to five parts of Alaska this trip, Seward, Homer, Girdwood, Mount McKinley and Denali. Mt. McKinley is in the southern half of the National Park and the vistor center is in the North and the tundra. Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think. Kit
:: The Big Island - Hawaii August 2007 ::
This is my August trip to the Big Island. I started in Hilo and stayed at the Dolphin Bay Hotel. The owner John, is an expert on photographing lava. I got his advice on what to take pictures of and where I could find hot flowing lava. He advised, given the direction the lava was flowing, the only way to see lava was by helicopter. It had been flowing to the ocean in June and you could walk up to it. While I was in Hawaii the lava flowed east away from the ocean. East from Pu'u O'o (The active volcanic crater) and into National Forest Land. The lava burns the forest as it cools and created interesting sights.
:: The Wave Galleries ::
My first hike to the Wave on the Utah Arizona border. We hiked the wave May 7th 2010, Marge's birthday. The Wave is a special place and requires BLM permits to hike to the Wave. I also have pictures going in and some from the surrounding area. Also, special to me, are a collections of pictures taken of California Condors, who roost at the Navajo Bridge on Highway 89A. The bridge crosses 400 feet above the Colorado River.

:: Trip to Israel Nov 2016 ::
My Second Trip to Israel Nov 2016
:: My Sisters and Brother In Law ::
These are two of my sisters and my brother in law who joined me at Rocky Point. The trip started at the 20th of October, my birthday, and lasted 7 days. Lots of time to do nothing. The Mayan has good food and a clean building and grounds. It's a nice place to relax and enjoy the time. We did!
:: Rocky Point October 2008 ::
Lynne, Mom and Renee came on this trip in early October. The weather was the last hot weather of the year and was around 100 Fahrenheit until the last full day of the trip. On Saturday the wind picked up and temperatures drop some. Renee had her espresso machine going and life was great.
:: The California Coast ::
My drive along the California Coast from Humboldt State Park just above Fort Bragg to San Simeon and Hearst Castle. I did spend my first night at the Mendocino Hotel;it has not changed since the early 1970's when I first paid a visit to this landmark hotel. I cut inland along the Navarro River on highway 128 to Highway 101 and the south. I picked up Highway 1 again at Pacifica just below San Francisco. I stayed the night in Big Sur. I did get to walk at Point Lobos State Park, whose beaches were made famous by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. Some pictures of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse and a shot taken while crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.
