We have recently switched our photo albums (see "More Photos" link above left) from WebShots to Picasa. Although there aren't any additional 2006 photos on it yet, there may be some other photos that you haven't seen before.  I'll eventually have a "virtual" tour of the CT when I finish the remaining seven sections in 2007. Meanwhile, enjoy the plethora of pictures in the journal pages above. Thanks! 2-28-07
