May 17th Meeting – 7:00 PM Olin Hall RM 129 Whitman College
BROWSING THROUGH DECADES OF AREA NATURE/WILDLIFE PHOTOS
Don Davis, one time English teacher and retired Sports/Outdoor writer-photographer will shuffle through a number of photo galleries from his online website: Tripper.Smugmug.com and, time permitting, from his blog at Outtripper.blogspot.com. These sites have been used for storing photos and stories, as opposed to selling them, from as far back as 2003, at least. The photos have been taken during trips around our area and the North West. It’s easy to use the search option on the Tripper home page to locate generic galleries: For example search Mill Creek (293 galleries), Oregon Coast (16), Malheur (8), Osprey (41), Herons (189), Pelicans (49), McNary (60), McKay (12) and moose (3). Since his 2010 retirement Davis continues to add photos to the Tripper site. They are collected during outings with his wife Darlene and Nora the Schnauzer and walks with Nora.
Don Davis attended high school in Kingsport, Tenn. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1956. Don married Darlene Thomas in Havre, Mont. He received a B.S. degree from Northern Montana College and a M.S. degree from Montana State in Bozeman. He taught High School English in Livingston, Mont., Port Angeles, Wa., and Milton-Freewater before working full time at the Union-Bulletin from 1986 until he retired in 2010.
