The Sahara Desert at Sunset
Merzouga, Morocco (27Nov00)

This is the travel photo archive. Here you will find all of the photos from my digital camera that I have taken during my travels. Currently, none of my scanned 35mm slides are included. Select photos from this collection are also included in my travel stories. I have done some minor editing of these, but there are some rather underwhelming photos in the mix as well.

Each photo includes a caption, location, and date. You can enlarge the photo by clicking on the image. Photos are in chronological order, sorted loosely by country.
