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 Smokey Mountains National Park and the fall colors of the Georgia/Carolina mountains, so I will be posting pictures from that trip soon. It was a great trip. 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 and beyond.

Lauri and Steve in Kenya, 2018



***December 9 -- We fly to Salt Lake City, then drive to Moab and spend four days checking out Arches and Canyonlands National Parks



***March 2021 -- Depart from Long Beach CA for a cruise with several stops in Mexico. That is -- if the cruise lines are operating by then.



***April 2021 -- 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.



***June 2021 -- Another trip to Africa! This time to Botswana. We are going with Dancing Zebra Safari Company again. I would highly recommend them to anybody thinking of an African safari. 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.



***October 2021-- Off to Maui for a week! Should be a lot of sunset photo ops among others.
