Two years before, my visit to the Grand Canyon had been one of the highlights of the trip. I decided to repeat the visit on this trip. Then, I had visited the South Rim of the canyon. It had been beautiful weather then and visibility had been incredible. This time, I opted for the much less visited...

After seeing so many national parks, I didn't expect much from the Grand Canyon but I was blown away by it. I don't think the pictures will be all that impressive but I was certainly impressed.

I visited this park four days after being snowed on at Crater Lake. It was 106 degrees in the valley.

2002_CA_Joshua_Tree12CA -- Joshua Tree Natl Park
I'm not sure what I thought the attraction of Joshua Tree would be. At this point, I was pretty tired of deserts. I think the main reason I wanted to go there was because of a the title of the "Joshua Tree" U2 album.

2006_DC_WHouse_Garden35DC -- White House Garden Tour (2006)
In the old days, this was a more enjoyable event because you could actually wander through some of the gardens. Now days, you have to stay on the pavement and you seldom get anywhere close to an actual plant. Still, it's only offered a few times a year so take it while you can.

2003_DC_Earth_Day58Dept of State -- Earth Day (2003) with Colin Powell and birds
While the Earth Day activities under the Bush administration were minimal, there was an activity scheduled for the State Department that I was interested in attending. I really wanted to see the bald eagle they were going to have on display. Sure enough, Mike Callahan, a naturalist from the Nanjemoy...
