We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in June this year! In Van Howd fashion, we slipped away to spend three days in the Redwoods of Northern California. And would you believe it, in all our travels around the world, we had never been there. It was reminiscent of our honeymoon in 1959 where we left after the wedding in a Jeep truck and camper to explore the northwest for almost 3 months until I had to be back in school to finish my degree at Pepperdine University in mid September. Yes, we sat on Mom’s front porch, looked at the dim stars in the night sky of Los Angeles, and wondered why we had come back. The wilderness had become home and still is “home” in our hearts. We can remember leaving with $500 in our wallet and returning with $200. You couldn’t do that today, not even with credit cards! In August this year we made our way back to West Yellowstone for the 50th anniversary of the big earthquake that formed Quake Lake in 1959 while we were on our honeymoon. In our travels we had camped in Yellowstone Park. It was high season there, and when we came to West Yellowstone, all the campgrounds around were filled or closed. That night on August 17th when the big quake hit around 11:30pm, we were parked next to the lodge of friends. Campgrounds were we had tried to stay were destroyed and many died. People said we got off to a shaky start with our marriage, but it has been a great 50 years. We always said we would take three months and do it again, but our lives have become so busy, we never have been able to get away. I guess we replaced it with our trips to Africa, where Doug has been able to spend many wonderful years researching and understanding the wildlife and its surroundings.
