Caption Wallie V Funk [Jr] at Death Valley
Description Images from a trip to Mexico in May 1953 by Wallie V Funk [Jr] with Anacortes dentist, Dr. Eugene Alton "Bud" Strom (future Mayor of Anacortes). They were joined by Gordon Woodland, manager of the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, who was doing U.S. Naval Reserve training in San Diego. The three went on to Tijuana, Mexico, to Arizona where Gordon Woodland's brother lived, to Death Valley Desert and back to Anacortes.
