I have have been fortunate to
be able to travel to many great place in different parts of
the world. This section of my site is designed to share
with you a few of the best. I hope that you will add these
to your own list of must visits, and if you get there, drop
me a note.
Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak, Borneo: I traveled to Borneo for an introduction to the tropic rainforest.
Deer Park, Olympic National Park, Washington: A favorite place in a spectacular National Park.
Winter Room, Friday Mosque, Isfahan: Simple design, incredible architecture in a city about which people once remarked, "Isfahan is half the world."
Mount Katahdin, Baxter State Park, Maine: My first introduction to the world of mountains.
Place de Vosges, Paris: An urban place without equal.
Wood-Tikchik State Park, Alaska: A land of rivers and lakes, the site of my favorite wilderness trip.
Sandfly Bay, Otago Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand: Home to the rare Yellow-eyed Penguin.
Un-named Island in Prince William Sound, Alaska: The best campsite.
Keawaiki, Hawai'i: Keawaiki is an historic Hawaiian homestead built in the late 1920s by Francis I'i Brown. He was a renowned businessman, legislator and sportsman in his time. This property is still in the Brown family ownership and they have been most kind to let me visit it.
Haleakala National Park, Hawai'i: I went to this National Park to see the mysterious silversword plant in bloom. For many years I had seen photos of this endemic plant known to the Hawaiians as the ahinahina. It grows only high upon the volcanoes of the Hawaiian islands.
In 2002 I visited three historic European Gardens that had existed since the 1600s.
