AT - GAME 99
Appalachian trail thru hike Georgia to Maine 2166 miles in 18 weeks.
Australia - 2005/02/07 to 2005/04/01 - Sydney
Southeast Australia - Seven weeks touring by rental van in the National Parks of Oz and a hike on the Overland Trail across a portion of Tasmania.
Australia - 2005/02/10 to 2005/02/11 - Manley and Bondi
Sydney provides a number of nearby attractions that are easily reached by foot, train or ferry. I spent a couple of days visiting Manley and Bondi before striking out to the parks of New South Wales.
Australia - 2005/02/12 to 2005/02/14 - Blue Mountains to Jervis Bay
The Blue Mountains are preserved in a large park west of Sydney. Filled with water falls plunging into the Grose Valley over escarpments of red layers of rock, this provincial park provides a wide range of forest environments. In total contrast, Jervis Bay is a tropical looking setting of blue water and white sand.
Australia - 2005/02/15 to 2005/02/17 - Jervis Bay to Murramarang National Park, Mimosa Rocks National Park
Parrotts everywhere, rain, fog and car troubles make this section of the trip a mixed experience.
AZ -Grand Canyon Escalante Route - 2003/10/01 - 5 days
The perfect backpack trip starts with fear over dire warnings from the National Park Service. Rugged and remote - Definitely. Hard - you bet. Dangerous - not if you pay attention.
MD - Assateague - 2003/10/31 to 2003/11/02
Without a kayak on Assateague National Seashore - are you crazy? This time it's a photo safari.
NM - 2003/10/01 to 2003/10/04 - Canyon de Chelly, El Morro and Chaco Canyon
El Morro, Chaco Canyon and Canyon de Chelly provide insight into the lives of the native peoples of the Southwest Desert. Spending some time at each gives one an appreciation of the difficulty and beauty of life in the desert.
WY - 2005/08/16 to 2005/08/25 - Backpacking in Yellowstone National Park Thorofare
Want to escape the crowds? Go to Yellowstone National Park, the most heavily visited park in the United States. A few miles from your car and you will be all alone.
