North Through the Prairies
With Sylvia, Jim and Charlie Gallagher
Authors:  mostly Sylvia, perhaps a little by Jim and probably nothing from Charlie
This trip diary, written by Sylvia Gallagher, describes their trip from Huntington Beach,  north through the prairie states.  The trip began in early April and ended in late June. Sylvia sent me 3 installments of her trip diary, by diskette, at 3-week intervals, which I posted as pdf documents  for you to print out and then read as well as regular html documents which you can simply read online.  She sent me the 4th and final installment, along with the trip bird list, after she had returned home.  Nancy Kenyon, webmaster
