Our Summer Trip Out West




Fred, who as usual gets high marks for planning, has been researching stops we might make on a trip out west, and he has gotten the required vaction so that we can have a full week and two weekends in late June- June 21st through June 29th, to be exact. I, too, have gotten leave from Data Junction and so everything is on track for the trip. I will be driving my new Elantra, and we will camp when we can.

If you are already familiar with the use of a Master Index for one of our long trips, please click HERE.


Using the Master Index

We took a great many pictures and even some movies while on our trip out west. Fred's new digital camera has the ability to take short movie clips, and he will be trying it out. I've been looking into digital cameras myself, and thought I might have one for this trip, but the one I want won't be available until after we return, so for now I will stick with my Canon film camera. Since we did so many things and took so many pictures, I have organized this trip into an album page for each day of our trip. In the index below, you can jump directly to a specific day if you wish.

On the days that we did a number of different things, I have further organized these album pages into a section for each of them. Each activity will have a heading on that day's album page; the Index will tell you what the activities were that day should you care to find something specific. If you choose one of the date links, you will be positioned at the top of the album page for that date. There, you can use any navigation technique you wish to read the narrative and look at the pictures that interest you. Additionally, the top and bottom of each album page have links that you can use to navigate to a prior or subsequent day within the trip. There is also a link you can use to return to the Master Index below.

When you are done looking at this Western trip, use one of the links at the top or bottom of any daily page to return to the Index below and then use the link at the top of the index to jump to the top of this index page. There you will find links enabling you to move forward or backward through the photo album, as well as a link to take you to the index for this year.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. To access the master index, please click HERE.
