Happy New Year 2009

We enjoyed a road trip to Joshua Tree National Park with our friends the Johnson Family for New Year, 2009. Joshua Tree NP is in the high desert of Southern California - inland from Los Angeles. It's very beautiful and not hot at this time of year. In fact there was a little snow - they'd had about 18" of snow for Christmas. So we had several very nice walks in the National Park and visited a wild west ghost town/movie set in the area. Very interesting and enjoyable. Thanks guys for your company. Photos: click here.

And coming up....

January 25, 2009 is a special day to all Scots. It's the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns - the National Poet. We're planning a trip to Houston to be with the family. My brother in law Robert is Chieftain of the Houston Heather and Thistle Society and will preside over a huge Burns Supper to celebrate the occasion. I'm the Society's webmaster: click here.

We're planning a vacation in 2009 with the 'holiday gang' to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, Wyoming. This will be either July or August - we're still in the planning process at this time.
