Joshu Tree National Park
The Big Island

Akaka Falls, whose image has graced many a postcard, is on the east side of the Big Island of Hawai'i. As you can see, these falls are rather dramatic.

Mount Ranier, Washington

We were lucky to get such a clear view of the peak. Even though it was June, snow covered the hiking trails. Absolutely stunning!

St. John (USVI)

Here is a picture of Coral Bay Harbor from near our rental villa. Quite a view, n'est-ce pas?

Vieques (Puerto Rico)

The isle of Vieques is about a 45 minute ferry ride from Fajardo, Puerto Rico. This view is taken from the top floor of a restaurant/Inn called Bananas. We watched as some folks loaded their dogs off a large, moored boat into an inflatable boat and then motored in to shore to walk their dogs (you can just see them in the lower left).

St. John Again

Brown Bay Beach, so named for the masses of sea grass that grow near the shore was one of my favorite spots on St. John. The water was clear and calm. The snorkeling was also varied at this beach due to the sea grass, white sandy patches, rocky edge on one side, and a coral reef on the other (yes, a shallow coral reef). All in one spot. It was wonderful. Added bonus, not many people.

Port Angeles, WA

Nicole is standing next to a sculpture of an octopus. It was quite well done and very textured. Port Angeles featured quite a bit of public art like this, which made walking around all the more interesting.

Banyan Tree

My oldest daughter climbed up into this tree, which easily dwarfs her. We found many of these trees on the Big Island (Hawai'i). This particular one was on the Hilo side of the island (the east).
