Aug 21, 2017 - Sizerville State Park (8/18 - 8/20/17)

This is a gorgeous park with 28 campsites. Most of the tent sites are on the creek that runs through the park. It has several covered picnic areas and hiking trails. We were in site #16, by far the prettiest site in the park. Just behind our site was the amphitheater. Right across the street was the bathhouse, a very nice one. Across from the bathhouse was a big pile of free wood for the fire pits. The only problem with the wood was that it was fresh cut and wet from rain. It took a lot of work to get it to burn. We persisted and made it...

Jul 1, 2016 - Day 7 Allegheny National Forest

Today started out with a nice Breakfast at the Hotel and getting ready to leave for the Allegheny National Forest. We are excited. Rain seems to be in the area, but we think it may miss us.

The Day was mostly overcast, but that...

Jan 9, 2011 - Tim's solo journey, beginnning on the 8th & 9th: Lima to Trujillo

Traveled from Lima going north to Tujillo, by bus on the Pan American Highway, with an overnight in Barraca. The first day was a five hour ride. On the 9th I left Barraca for the 6 & 1/2 hour ride up the coast to Tujillo. The scenery was pretty much the same both days... sandy - hilly desert with occasional views of the ocean. The long stretches of desert were broken infrequently by lush green oases wherever a river from the Andes would cross it. Growing in these fertile areas were miles of sugar cane, asparagus and a little corn.
