Welcome to the photo blog for David and Janet Elmore. You can find pages full of photos from our trips with Vanessa or Savanna (our van-based RV) and pages that are a record of events with lots of photos. Many of our travel photos are connected to a map at the bottom of our posts so you can see where we went and can look for photos at specific places.

Below is a list of recent posts.

Lostine to Lowell ID

Sat 12-Jun-2021 Idaho, Oregon, Travel | 0 comments

Incredible gorgeous drive today. We went up the side of one mountain, then down the other, then up another – ranging from 3500 to 5800 feet. At the Joseph Canyon overlook we learned about the Nez Perce...

NF-39 to the Wallowa Mountains

Fri 11-Jun-2021 Oregon, Travel | 0 comments

Hell’s Canyon Dam hike

Right after breakfast we moved to our new site. Good that we did it early, as not 15 minutes after our move, a camper pulling a trailer arrived, hoping to claim our site. He ended up in the site next to ours....
