Although I spent quite a bit of time organizing this slideshow, Photobucket has a mind of its own.... Sorry!
Photos are from the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde and the delightful sandstorm in New Mexico. It's hard to take photos in the Grand Canyon without the whole thing looking washed out and flat, so the best time of day is sunrise or sunset. We had a *lot* of photos! This is about 3% of the total.
You'll see in this collection a photo of Mother Nature's fingerprint kit - all my prints on the door of the car had been preserved by blowing sand! There is one photo of me in four different States at the same time: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado! How often do you get to do that? (not my best side, but not my worst either!)
The colours were fabulous. Thanks to everyone who emailed suggestions. It's obvious we needed two more weeks to see everything at a more leisurely pace.
Thanks for having a look!
