We panned for gold right at this spot!

I have been working on updating TMN’s pages the last few days and must confess… it wasn’t until today when I planned to move the photo pages, that I realized just what a crazy camera person I am! I literally have tens of thousands of photos now!!!

While I sort through all these flash drives and re-capture some wonderful memories, please be patient. My “plan” is to have pages offering a sampling of some of the amazing parks and sites this beautiful country has to offer under each State in the Photos section.  I will slowly work on uploading photos of states already listed, then add on those I do not. 

For those who subscribe to posts, you will not be getting the new page updates via email. So you will have to make sure you stop by now-and-then! 🙂

PHOTO: Photo above is from… well, no, I’m not going to tell you! You’ll just have to stop back later and find out! 😉

Don’t let rising fuel prices keep you grounded this summer. There are plenty of places to travel, right in your own “backyard”. And if you find yourself on 1-10 in Crestview (FL) or in the Destin/Fort Walton region, then you’re just a short distance from the Air Force Armament Museum.

The museum is free and open every day except Sunday and federal holidays. If you find yourself arriving early, don’t worry! There are over 20 planes to view outside the museum.

Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park in Vantage, Washington is just over 7,000 acres. The visitor center overlooks the Columbia River. When petrified wood was discovered in the area the park was created as a national historic preserve. The Forest  is a registered national “natural” landmark. Although we didn’t camp there (just stopped for the day), they do have camping year-round. It is an amazing drive along the Columbia River and you’ll find rock shops nearby to stop and buy souvenirs.

Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City, California is well worth a visit! The lighthouse is actually on a small island just offshore. The lighthouse is only open (during season) when the tide permits folks to “walk” over. On our first visit we actually missed it, but fortunately there are so many other scenic sites in the area, that we had no problem returning later in the day. 🙂
