  • A Mural Five Stories Tall by John Rayburn 11/21/2014 6:18:10 AM
    After revisiting the Canadian Maritime provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island we were headed toward the St. Lawrence Waterway as our means of reaching our planned excursion into the next province west. The Waterway makes it easy to... more

  • Forty Gallons of Sap to Make One Gallon of Syrup by John Rayburn 11/19/2014 7:43:56 AM
    This is the next to last of my travel stories with the final one to be posted Friday (11/21). Final editing and proofing has been completed and cover designed to convert the 48 chapters into an e-book. The title will be “TRAVEL: Making Day D... more

  • Smuggling Was Big-Time, Especially During Prohibition by John Rayburn 11/17/2014 5:57:00 AM
    A convenient location close to the Canadian border once made the San Juan Islands a prime location for smuggling. Goods of one kind or another could be bought, moved surreptitiously across the border and get some higher priced sales. For one... more

  • Deep Canyons, Towering Cliffs and Much More by John Rayburn 11/15/2014 6:55:51 AM
    Heading east out of Nevada toward extreme southwest Utah there’s only one way to go and that’s on I-15, which leads you right into St. George. That was the winter home for Mormon leader Brigham Young, whose ailments meant the harsh winters a... more

  • Any Description Requires Superlatives by John Rayburn 11/13/2014 6:36:38 AM
    It’s difficult trying to decide what to talk about first in any verbal or written discussion of Paris, France. We have been in many parts of France, including the capital although on one trip we had so many things to see and do elsewhere we d... more

  • New Residents First Called It Laclede's Village by John Rayburn 11/11/2014 5:31:25 AM
    It all came about because a Frenchman named Pierre Laclede decided in 1763 he had found a great spot for a trading post. It was in a heavily forested area on a high bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. All those trees had to be cleared f... more

  • Historical? Yes. Verifiable? Not Always. by John Rayburn 11/9/2014 4:55:40 AM
    More or less that’s a meaning of “legend,” and the United Kingdom is full of them. One example is in the Great Hall of Winchester Castle. Hanging on a wall there is what is supposed to be the table where King Arthur gathered with his Knights ... more

  • Massive Rockslides Caused Shutdown by John Rayburn 11/7/2014 4:05:11 AM
    As we stood out on the deck of the Niagara Falls Observation Tower we not only had a view of the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls of Niagara but also a better close-up sense of the tremendous power. I’m not sure how they arrive a... more

  • The Best Viewing Place In the City by John Rayburn 11/5/2014 6:00:14 AM
    There’s a stretch of water that’s only a mile wide and three miles long. That doesn’t seem like much but it was enough to bring about one of the most famous architectural wonders in the United States. At one time the only way you ... more

  • Hanky-Panky Brought Big Changes by John Rayburn 11/3/2014 5:13:08 AM
    Once upon a time there was a small fishing and pearl-diving village that began to transform itself in the 1700s. Its first upward step found it becoming a port that was serving some places farther inland. San Blas had been getting th... more

  • It Has Been Called "The Cradle of Liberty" by John Rayburn 11/1/2014 5:20:23 AM
    The words “Boston” and “history” are virtually synonymous and that seems to be even more true with any additional visits. The city got its start in 1630 when some colonists from England moved in. These were Protestants from the 16... more

  • A Hummingbird Landed On My Shoulder by John Rayburn 10/30/2014 5:48:14 AM
    How about a zoo, botanical garden, natural history museum, aquarium and art gallery all rolled into one? That’s what you’ll find about 12 miles west of Tucson, Arizona in what was once mostly a natural desert area. It’s called the Arizona-Son... more

  • It’s Close to Impossible to Say It or Spell It by John Rayburn 10/27/2014 5:36:43 AM
    While visiting several places in Wales it was easy to discover that if Welsh folks don’t want you to know what they’re saying in their native language the odds of figuring it out are very high against you. There are many examples o... more

  • It Covers a Mere 45 Miles Each Way by John Rayburn 10/24/2014 4:31:19 AM
    If you consider the trip we’re going to tell you about just from the standpoint of distance it doesn’t sound like much. That would be a grave injustice because the combination of history and scenic beauty along the way ranks high in any evalu... more

  • It Started With Hunting and Trapping by John Rayburn 10/21/2014 6:52:26 AM
    It wasn’t at all unusual in the eighteenth century for various places that were to become the United States to begin as fertile areas for hunting and trapping. That certainly was the case along the Big Muddy River and some creeks that fed in... more

  • How High Is Up? by John Rayburn 10/18/2014 4:44:52 AM
    The first altitude figure I ever heard for Pike’s Peak was 14,110 feet, but there have been several up-and-down changes over the years. The first official figure was 14,109. Then, in the late 1800s, they built the Summit House Tower and move... more

  • It Wasn't Impregnable After All by John Rayburn 10/15/2014 4:34:36 AM
    We were wandering around the Alsace-Lorraine area of France and since it touches on Belgium, Germany and Switzerland there were plenty of places to explore. One of these was Colmar and that’s where we found out some things about a ... more

  • Bicycles Were Just the Beginning by John Rayburn 10/12/2014 6:50:17 AM
    There are those who might describe some of our travel habits as “willy nilly,” – (: by compulsion: without choice), or perhaps “helter skelter,” – (: in undue haste, confusion, or disorder). Both would be wrong. We may not always have ... more
