The Travels of Johnny Thunder

Hello, Johnny Thunder here. Welcome to my travel journal. You may have seen me and my friends in some of our other adventures. From Egypt to Asia; from the Lost World to the Amazon; we've been everywhere. Now, however, I would like to extend an invitation to join me on a tour through the real world. Check back here for pictures from my latest travels... -JT

More Lost Adventures

And to wrap up this series of lost adventures, here are a few miscellaneous pictures that didn't really warrant their own entry:

Site of the First McDonald's restaurant, now a McDonald's museum in San Bernardino, California.

King Tut's treasures packed for transport back to Egypt; sadly we arrived one day too late for the exhibition.

The old Spanish Mission in Santa Clara, California.

Stay tuned for more lost adventures!

Return to Yosemite

In Spring of 2012, we revisited the world famous Yosemite National Park. Entering the park from the remote east, we caught our first glimpse of the back side of the Half Dome monolith and the Woodchuck, who does, in fact, not chuck wood.

Continuing onto the valley floor (pictured above), we stopped and viewed the waterfalls, including Yosemite Falls and Bridal Veil falls. Finally, we traveled back into the high country to peer down into the valley from the dizzying heights of Glacier Point.

Arches and Canyonlands, Redux (A lost adventure)

In fall of 2012, we revisited Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, in Southeast Utah.

In the red rock deserts of the American Southwest, Arches showcases hundreds of the park's namesake sandstone arches, including: the spectacles; landscape arch; and the spectacular double arch (seen above).

In Canyonlands, the waters of the Green and Colorado Rivers carve deep canyons below towering mesas into the landscape. Canyonlands is also home to its own arches, including the famous Mesa Arch, which hangs on the edge of a cliff to frame an impressive view.

Outside the park is the kitschy Hole in the Rock, featuring a home carved into the rock face. Also near by is a cache of dinosaur fossils.
