Dick and Chris at Vernal Falls in Yosemite, August 1997
Dick and Chris' had wonderful tour of the National Parks located
in California in August 1997.
We visited Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon, Death Valley, Bristle Cone Pine Forest, Disneyland and Universal Studios. It was VERY, VERY hot in Death Valley.
The Bristle Cone pines are oldest living trees and have a strange appearance.
We camped in the high country of Yosemite and hiked to many of the waterfalls and spectacular views.
The huge Redwood trees in Sequoia National Park are awesome, and made a great impression upon Chris .
Gina at the last Redskin game at RFK December 1996
She is standing on the field near the 50 yard line in front of the Redskins bench . The Skins beat the Cowboys 37 to 10 and made Gina, Dick and all Skins fans happy, on a nostalgic night that ended the Skins games at RFK. We remember the great Redskin victories in the NFC Championship games against the Cowboys in 1973 and 1982, and the 49ers in 1983, the Vikings in 1988, and the Lions in 1992. Christopher Chambers added the fitting touch when he played Taps after the stadium was emptied. Many fans took the sod and a few even ripped out the seats they had used.
