Family Christmas Cards: 2004-1995


From the Christmas of 1995, Peter and Lucy have produced an annual collage of photographs that best represents their activities during the previous year. Many of these photographs have outdoor settings, in particular, mountain scenery. This is to be expected as most of our time in the USA has been spent climbing or hiking the numerous peaks of the Oregon/Washington Cascades and the Californian Sierra Nevada.
