News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website! We finally got in a trip to Africa -- to the Serengeti for 12 days, so I will be posting pictures from that trip soon. It was an awesome 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 so far.

***October 24th -- We 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.


***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.


***POSTPONED TO 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.


***POSTPONED TO NEXT FALL-- Off to Maui for a week! Should be a lot of sunset photo ops among others.
