News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website! We just got back from a trip to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, and a quick trip to Missouri, so I will be posting pictures from those trips soon. I live in the Sacramento metro area in California with the love of my life and travel partner, Lauri. Below are the trips we have planned for 2020 so far.

***Well, we have a couple of two day driving trips around California planned as soon as this Coronavirus crisis is over and the stay at home order is lifted. 


***July (hopefully) Fly one way to Seattle, then rent a car and spend three days driving down the Washington, Oregon and California coast.


***POSTPONED TO AUGUST 23 -- We head off to Africa again! This time to Botswana. We land in Johannesburg, then fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, then proceed to Chobe, Savuti, and Moremi parks, and then to the Makgadikgadi Pans. We are going with Dancing Zebra Safari Company again. I would highly recommend them to anybody thinking of an African safari.


***October 24th -- Fly to Atlanta, then drive around the north Georgia Blue Ridge mountains hopefully to coincide with the fall colors. Also North and South Carolina and a visit to Smoky Mountains National Park.


***November 7th -- Off to Maui for a week! Should be a lot of sunset photo ops among others.


***POSTPONED TO NEXT SPRING -- We fly to Dallas and embark on an eight day road trip through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Oklahoma. The highlight of the trip will be three days on the Natchez Trace Parkway.
