Harry and Laurie McGavran

We enjoy hiking and exploring the outdoors. The Jemez Mountains contain lots of interesting history and are laced with historic roads, trails, and ghost settlements that we enjoy exploring. Pictures of our outings are in the link below, but pictures of northern New Mexico from our legacy page are here.

Around Los Alamos and the Jemez Mountains

We got our first Siberian husky as a puppy in 1975. We were hooked, and have had Siberians ever since. Our Siberians are an important part of the family.

Laurie has friends who kindly allowed her to ride their horses. This was the best of everything, but, alas, horses grow old and pass on to greener pastures.

Laurie picked up the flute again about 20 years ago, after a hiatus of more years than she wishes to admit. She plays with the Los Alamos Community Winds. Laurie also plays with a flute choir, creatively calling themselves the Los Alamos Flutes. We have regular C flutes and piccolos, alto flutes, bass flutes, a keyboard, and occasionally less common instruments as well.

Laurie has always liked small planes, and decided that becoming a pilot would be a good activity in retirement. She holds a Private Pilot certificate and is a co-owner of a Cessna 172RG, also called a Cutlass.

We are both amateur radio operators. As time permits we will complete the page below with details about our amateur radio operations. (Harry is much more active and interested in the hobby than Laurie is.)
