~ Travel Photography of 2011 ~

My travels in 2011 began in Colville, Washington. I had spent the winter there visiting friends.

It was a longtime desire to visit Yellowstone National Park during the winter months and that was my first road trip of the year.

NOTE: The song on this page, I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack contains the following refrain in the background by Sons of the Desert:
"Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
tell me who wants to look back on their youth and wonder where those years have gone."
I suppose one could say this year is making up for lost time in my youth. I have always wanted to do this and now it's happening.
