Martin's trips

In the trips from Utah, I have a full story. In the older and longer trips, I have just the pictures and small description. Descriptions from 2003 on contain GPS generated track map and fotos.
I prefer webpages that are simple and informative, without excessive baggage, and I am trying to do my pages accordingly. If you don't like that, tough luck.

The trips below are sorted according to the place. Here are the trips sorted by an activity.
