Saguaro National Park. Just saying it brings to mind that majestic cactus, standing tall and proud, branches reaching to the sky! And rightly so, everywhere you look, even places where you’d think nothing could grow, there they are. Such a ubiquitous symbol of the west, you see their profile everywhere, even here in Texas. Unfortunately,Continue reading “Saguaro, Saguaros, and More!”
It’s January now (and we’re back from our January trip), so here’s the November trip! We drove out to Atlanta to see the folks, and we went on from there to some of the nearby parks. On the way to Georgia we stopped in Tuscaloosa so Leigh could show me around the places she usedContinue reading “The Great Smoky Mountains – And More”
There are a lot of things to do in southern Utah outside the National Parks!
When we started planning this trip, we looked at the average conditions for Bryce Canyon in September. Average high around 70 (about 21 for you metric types) sounds great! Lows around 40-42? (yes, 5-ish in metric) Not a problem, layer up a little and take it off as the temperature climbs. Easy, yes? Then, asContinue reading “Bryce Canyon National Park”
“…a burning, seething cauldron, filled with dramatic light and color.” -Georgia O’Keeffe. In our last days of freedom, before the Enclosed Times, we took a trip up to Palo Duro Canyon, up Amarillo way. Unfortunately, we came back… But it was a great trip while it lasted! I hadn’t been there for more than 30Continue reading “Welcome to The Grand Canyon … of Texas”
Leigh was going out to San Jose for an event with the non-profit she chairs (connectionpractice.org), so we thought we’d take advantage of the opportunity. I would go out shooting (with the camera, people!) while she was working, then we’d go to a couple of National Parks. It was a great plan – and itContinue reading “California, Part 1”
I took a driving trip up to Hot Springs, Arkansas just to scout out the area and see what I could see!
The week before Thanksgiving, Leigh looked at me and said, “So, where are we going?” We hadn’t been anywhere for a while, between work and family and my shows (that many of you were kind enough to visit), and it was time for at least a quick getaway. So while everybody else was watching footballContinue reading “Thanksgiving Weekend, Sonora, Texas”
Here’s part 2 of our journey (Part 1 is here) to meet family in New Orleans. Now we’re taking the long way home… We left New Orleans and drove north across Lake Pontchartrain – mostly because I had never crossed the Causeway before, but also because it was the fastest way to get to Covington,Continue reading “The Road Home…”
This post was going to take in the whole trip, but it started getting way too long, and it was delayed by the efforts around my first show, so here’s the trip to and through New Orleans… When my Father called up and said “Let’s meet in New Orleans,” we said “okay.” It was halfwayContinue reading “Wandering to New Orleans, and back.”
