It's Finally Finished! 2007 PNW Vacation

This afternoon I finished uploading photos and journals from our vacation to the Pacific Northwest three months ago. It's the biggest Web project I've launched since the still-unfinished BikingIllinois.com site (I've only made pages for 24 of the 60 rides so far -- now that this project is done, I'll have to get back to work on that one).

I put it on a "new" Web site, DavidJohnsen.com. I registered the vanity domain when I became a writer, but I don't use it for my business because people always misspell my name anyway. Now it will be the place for anything that doesn't fit thematically into my other sites. If it's a bike trip, it will go on DJRider.com, but if it's a car trip, it will go on DavidJohnsen.com.

In case you forgot about our vacation, here are some highlights:
  • Theodore Roosevelt National Park
  • Dog Bark Park Inn
  • Mount Rainier National Park
  • Portland Rose Garden
  • Powell's Bookstore
  • Pacific Coast
  • Wildlife Safari
  • Redwoods
  • Crater Lake National Park
  • World Center for Birds of Prey
  • Craters of the Moon National Monument

Read all about it!

Please let me know if any photos are missing, or if you find typos, misspellings, etc.

David, thanks so much for posting your photos and the account of your trip. Too bad the Crater Lake park rim road was closed when you visited. If you get the chance to visit again, fall (late September/early October) is a fantastic time to visit and there are a couple of great bicycling trips that happen each year around the rim...as well as a marathon.

Good luck with your writing,
