Welcome to Westerntreks.com!

We're back on line - sort of - see the note below.

8/25/12 - Updating web-site  - My web-host went out of business (I guess) so I am now in the process of uploading the entire web-site to a new host.  The images are large files which will take some time to upload so some image will be missing for a while and then each page will have to be checked for broken links.  Please accept my apologies and please bear with me - I am working on it as fast as I can!!!

Thanks for visiting my site and please come back!

12/15/11 - Updating files  - This site originated in the days of "dial-up" so all pictures and pages were kept as small as possible to speed up the downloads.  Now I am re-doing the more popular picture albums to take advantage of high-speed connections and to utilize a slide-show format.
See the recent updates - Arches, Antelope Canyon, Dane Spring and the Wave in the Directory.

11/30/11 - Masters Track and Field  - I finally succumb a new adventure by returning to competitive track and field at the masters level (for old-timers) .

11/11/11  - The Italy Tour - Ms. Trekker and I travel to Italy for our 50th Anniversary - it is done finally - although more captions may be added as time goes by.

I received this photo from a friend several years ago.  The photographer is a fire behavior analyst from Fairbanks, Alaska by the name of John McColgan. Since he was working at the time, he is not allowed to sell or profit from it but he should at least be recognized as the photographer. (Thanks Rosie for the correct attribution.)
