How to Get Around in Wandering Lizard


Wandering Lizard is currently composed of fourteen sections - Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Russia, New Zealand/Australia, Western History Notes, and Biographical Notes. The Western History section is organized by subject and there is an alphabetically structured Biographical Index. The various State sections are organized geographically and each state has an index. (The Inn-California section has nine regional indexes.) Links to the appropriate index are located at the very bottom of each page in Wandering Lizard. There is also a search box just above the main navigation links on all of the section home pages.


If you know where you want to go it is best to start with the appropriate index. The link located there will take you directly to the appropriate page. (Particularly useful if you are on a slow internet connection. Wandering lizard contains thousands of images that will slow down page loading times.)

If you are interested in a particular subject such as Native American Culture you should use the Table of Contents on the Wandering Lizard Home Page. There are currently sixteen themes providing horizontal links to specific pages dealing with that subject. More will be added in the future.

If you would prefer to roam about the site use the geographic links. These links form a pyramid which starts with the Wandering Lizard Home and proceeds vertically down through individual state home pages, regional pages, county pages, and finally down to individual destinations.
