Travel experiences of a lifetime. These are scanned pictures, because most of our major trips were taken years ago, before digital cameras, so you’ll have to forgive the lack of technical excellence. It is the trip that counts. 1. Gaping at exhibits at the New York World’s Fair in 1964.
2.Hiking through Aravaipa Canyon in Arizona in 1989.
3. Hiking the trails and driving the roads of Glacier National Park in 1989.
4. Seeing the sights and meeting the people of Israel in 1990.
5. River rafting through the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River 1990.
6. Climbing the Steps of Angkor Wat and exploring other Cambodian Temples in 1999.
We had many other striking adventures in the years between these. And of course the 21st century has brought more adventures. I think of seeing the Parthenon for the first time, sailing the Aegean, attending an Presidential nominating convention and an Inaugural Ball, visiting Taiwan, flying into Hong Kong, exploring New Zealand and many more, but the ones on this page make the top of our list for “once in a lifetime” experiences” because we only did them once, or because they were long-term goals that we finally realized. Each is unique in its own way.
