Travel Articles by Lindy Sisk

The articles listed are about trips made by myself and/or my family, as well as a couple of trips by friends I was not on, between 1998 and the current year. All of the articles about the summer of 2011 are listed in the 2011 Creede Summer Journal, linked below.

Earlier articles have mostly not been edited or updated. You will see pictures of and references to children who are now adults, which I hope will not annoy them too greatly.

I started writing these articles in response to requests from my family members for pictures from my travels, and decided posting web pages was easier. Never underestimate the power of lazyness.

Some of the earlier articles were coded using Netscape. Some of the links, like at the bottom of the pages, don't work - just use your "back" button to get back to this page. They are probably going to be left that way, unless I encounter a really prolonged stretch of awful weather, and can't think of anything more constructive to do while indoors. Unlikely. Laziness rears its ugly head once again.

Meanderings - Single Shots from Various Trips

In 1999 I retired from my job, and we traveled extensively that summer, from Texas to California, up the coast to Washington state, then into Canada and Alaska. After our visit to Seward and the Harding Icefield, Lisa had to fly back from Anchorage to put the girls back in school, and I drove back through Canada alone. The table below lists pages from that trip.

And, finally, if you like travel writing, take a look at Travels with Samantha. That's on Philip Greenspun's site. He is - or was - on the EE and CS faculty at MIT, and is also a professional photographer. Travels with Samantha is great reading as well as an education in web authoring, and won a "Best of the Web '94" award.
