Lone Elk: Yellowstone National Park, September 2003 We spotted this elk on our drive to the Upper Geyser Basin.

Mud Volcano: Yellowstone National Park, September 2003 Mud Volcano was our first stop in Yellowstone as we were headed to our campsite.

Kayaks: Amelia Island, April 2008 Rachelle and I went kayaking during our vacation. It was a first for both of us.

Fort at the Edge of the World: Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, April 2008 Today was the last day for our little excursion. We decided to stop in St. Augustine for a bit on our way down the coast. St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city, and the oldest port in the continental United States. When construction began on the Castillo de San Marcos in 1672, this masonry fort was literally on the edge of the known world to the Europeans who settled here.
