Anemone and I on our honeymoon in Denali National Park, Alaska. The mountains in the background are approximately seven miles from us, and winds were around 40 mph at the time this picture was taken.
Mt. McKinley on a clear day. Since McKinley is almost always cloudy, only 20% of visitors are fortunate enough to see the peak. A good omen for our marriage that we were able to see it (twice)???
Me standing in front of a huge glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.
Giraffes about 30 yards away in eastern Botswana.
Anemone and I standing at the base of what is said to be Africa's largest tree. The tree is called a baobab tree, and it is approximately 5,000 years old. It's located in northern Botswana near the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.
Susan Anderson, Andres Marroquin, me, and Anemone on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. The pans are all that remains of ancient seas that used to cover large parts of nothern Botswana. We slept on the pans--enjoying a beautiful sunset, sunrise, and freezing cold temperatures!
Two rhinos that came within 20 feet of us in Mokolodi Game Reserve near Gaborone, Botswana. There are only 26 rhinos in all of Botswana, so we felt quite fortunate to stumble upon these two.
A cheetah eating in Mokolodi Game Reserve. We were actually able to pet this cheetah. The cheetah's mother died a number of years ago, and it's been tamed by the reserve.
Elephants that came right up to our vehicle in Mokolodi Game Reserve.
