Week 3 Thing 6

Wow, that was fun but the day is GONE. This is why I rarely even start exploring new sites - they take a big chunk of time.

I created a trading card which I kept private because I have a personal photo on it.

I also ended up mapping our April 2007 family vacation pictures which I'd love to share with my parents. Any travel pics from now on will have to go on a map. What a great way to organize. I had to use google to verify the locations of the pictures because already I'd forgotten which state and which highway we were on when we hiked the falls and stopped at scenic look outs.
I ended up using national park sites http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/columbia/recreation/waterfalls.shtml to review where we were and learned more about our trip today. For example, according to the National Parks site, the falls we hiked are the second highest year-round flowing falls in the United States, and Yosemite Falls, which we have visited frequently, is the highest. However, according to Wikipedia, there are many others that have a greater drop.

To see pictures on the map, visit my URL Flikr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/denisewn by clicking here, then click on "map"

What great ideas! National and State Parks have lots of good information, photos, and history.

Thank you, you are the first to comment. I will have to add a link to the parks website.
