Internet access has been at a premium so I am running a little behind on the updates. Since Tucson I have visited the Grand Canyon (where I caught a sunrise), Hoover Dam, Las Vegas, Death Valley and now Mono Lake. I’ve done all of that since yesterday morning. Yikes! Time has been flying. I have a hard time imagining that the night photography workshop wrapped up just a short week ago. Did you see the group panorama from the junkyard? If not, check out Joe Reifer’s blog here.
Death Valley was incredible. I stopped several times along the way seemingly being lead by a bus filled with Asian tourists. Everywhere I went, they went. They seemed to be having quite the good time. So was I. Shorts and a t-shirt were appropriate for the 95F temperatures I was met with in Death Valley but not so much for the 50 degrees I stumbled upon in Mono Lake. This is the coldest weather I have been exposed to so far. I know I should not be complaining as the folks back home tell me that fall has gripped the area with rain and chilly temps.
Tomorrow, I will make a leisurely drive over Yosemite and call it a night in Modesto. Special thanks to “girlfriend” who found me a great little place to stay tonight. I’ve got my own cabin!
