Note: pictures in these photo galleries were taken by a variety of people and used with permission. Many of the pictures, in particular of the SNU rallies, include the initials of the photographer in the name. Under the picture in the gallery you will notice string of characters and numbers. This is the name of the photograph. They usually start with the date of the photo, then have an identifying number, then an abbreviated description. The initials of the photographer are at the end of the number. Usually the photographs with no initials are those taken by members of the Leipper family. Example: 06jl22-0002jt-sagehen-vista.jpg This photo was taken July 22, 2006 by Jerry Thornburg. Click here for the SNU photo policies.

Rally photo galleries by topic

These galleries highlight various aspects of rallies and other Airstream related activities. Although some other units are included, the focus is on the Sierra Nevada Unit. These galleries mainly cover the years 1998 through 2017. The galleries are divided into primary groups, each group has several galleries. The primary groups are Activities, Airstreams, Highlighting People, Outdoors and People and Their Pets. This set of galleries was inspired by Anita #1183. She is the one who has created and maintains these galleries. Although most of the pictures in these galleries are included in the photo galleries of rallies listed above, Anita’s creation of these galleries by topic provided an opportunity to include some additional photos. Viewing pictures by topic provides unique insight and emphasizes some special aspects of SNU activities. For instance, all the beautiful sunsets and moon rises we have witnessed at rallies. Or the fantastic scenery, the wildlife and the lakes, rivers and streams. Then there is the creativity and the projects we have carried out at rallies. The number of visitors, family and guests who have joined us at rallies is amazing. This project is continually evolving and changing so check back often.
