I love that picture of the bear so much.  I always want to see bears...from a distance.  The one time I saw a bear in a National Park was driving along the road through the Grand Tetons.  A smaller black bear was galloping south, parallel to our southerly motion, about 500 feet from the roadway.  It's still one of my favorite wildlife sightings.

Speaking of National Parks, it has been a oddly light year so far for visitation since I've only been to; Indiana Dunes, Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia.  I'm headed up to Yosemite tomorrow to track down segments of the Old Tioga Pass Road and Old Coulterville Road amid a couple other hikes.  My wife has express interest (finally) in seeing Lassen Volcanic National Park and Crater Lake.  Later this year we have plans for; Great Basin, Bryce Canyon, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, maybe Saguaro and Joshua Tree.  Channel Islands (specifically Anapaca Island) is on our radar for a weekend trip to Ventura.

National Parks and Monuments I've been to. This list is sad compared to others and I do support the NPS.

Lewis and Clark
Fort Vancouver
Mt. Rainier
San Juan Island (bot British and American camp)


ODOT, raise the speed limit and fix our traffic problems.
