Our Summer Trip to Oregon




Well, the time has rolled around again for our Summer Trip, although we are taking it a couple of weeks later than usual this year. We've been planning this trip for some time, and we think it will be a good one. We are going to explore the Pacific Northwest, the area of Southern Washington State and the state of Oregon. We want to see what's left of Mt. St. Helens, the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood, Portland, Mt. Shasta, perhaps extreme Northern California and the Oregon coast. We'll be flying in and out of Portland, Oregon, leaving Dallas on Saturday, July 17th and returning Sunday, July 25th.


Using the Master Index

Fred and I took a great many pictures and movies while in Oregon and Washington, so I have organized this trip into an album page for each day. There are eight of these pages, and you can jump to any one of them using the Master Index below simply by clicking on one of the dates.

We also did a lot on each day, so I have further organized these album pages into a section for each of the major things we might have done on any given day. If you wish, you may jump to a specific activity on a specific day simply by clicking on one of the activity links that are indented underneath each date.

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. Finally, you will also find a set of links at the top of each page that duplicate the function of the activity links below, enabling you to move around the page activity by activity. (At the end of each activity section there is also a link to take you back to the top of that daily page.)

When you are done looking at the pictures from our summer trip to the Pacific Northwest, use one of the links on one of the daily pages to return to this master index and then use the link at the top of the master 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.
