 Smith Family Travelogue

Come travel with the Smith family and see the world.  We have had the good fortune to travel to over 30 countries in the past few years and welcome you to see the images and hear the stories of our adventures.  Coke has been to over 100 countries and to every continent and has prepared a wonderful collection of travel tales and images that will no doubt make you want to start an expedition of your own! Visit our pages on North America, Central America, South America, Antarctica, the Arctic, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. 



Natural History of the Olympic Peninsula

Coke has had the pleasure of being a naturalist and instructor of natural history of the Olympic Peninsula for nearly a decade now.  The pages in this section of our website highlight, with images, links and basic information, the natural history of this phenomenal part of North America.


Virtual Insect Collection

Coke once owned one of the largest private insect collections on the planet.  With over 10,000 species of beetles, the collection is an important repository of many rare and scientifically important specimens.  Two families (Cerambycidae & Scarabaeidae) are emphasized in the collection but one can view images of other coleoptera and insects in the numerous images in this spectacular virtual collection.  I keep these galleries open so people can appreciate what a large working collection is.
