Something Other Than Tacoma - Finally!
It's been a while since I've added entries, but I finally have some new ones to report. As I was getting ready to move away from Seattle, I made a list of places that I had always meant to get to but never had. And I started knocking those off the list. Many of those excursions provided the basis for these new entries.
- Geek out at the Living Computers: Museum + Labs south of downtown Seattle
- Enjoy a frosty root beer at Issaquah's Triple XXX Root Beer Drive-in
- Check out the massive collection of aircraft at the Museum of Flight in Tukwila
- Pick up something kitschy at Archie McPhee's

Road Trip Summaries and Photos
As I travel, I often write up trip summaries with photos that I share with family and friends. I've started adding some of those to the site. Here's the latest:
In July 2017 I spent two weeks exploreing northwest New Mexico and northeast Arizona. During this trip I visited or saw about three dozen Ancestral Puebloan ruins sites, many associated with Chaco or Mesa Verde cultures. I also took in a number of geological sites and some museums, and I took about two dozen shorter to mid-length hikes.
You can find more of these on my Road Trips page.
Are You New to MarkHitsTheRoad.com?
Welcome to MarkHitsTheRoad.com, where I share photos, information and recommendations about great destinations and sights I've discovered along the way in my travels across the U.S., Canada and a number of other countries.
Major cities, national parks, historic sites, scenic views, hikes along secluded trails, and out of the way places are all here. And when I travel I'll hit the brakes to get pictures of interesting buildings, old business icons, classic theatres, funny signs and anything that claims to be the biggest-smallest-oldest-oddest of its kind - an ecclectic combination of whatever catches my eye. I hope you enjoy them, too.
Website Construction Update
I have neglected the website for awhile as I focused on an interstate move followed by my retirement, but I have finally added a number of new entries, and I have more on the way.
