last bit of the American Road Trip

Collected Katy_T from her home in Phoenix and set off for California, we arrived at Palm Springs about midnight although it was actually only 11.00 p.m. there ( daylight saving stuff )

We decided that daybreak was around 6.15 a.m. so set the alarm clocks and got some shut eye.

We were off by 6.30 without the sun being over the horizon yet and in place ready to start shooting with the first light, wow it is so clear in the desert it is soooooo difficult to control but we worked at it and did some good stuff.

wooo hoo I made it, there could be no stopping me now.

Lets see if i can post a pic here, I am a Blog Virgin when it come to doing anything but typing !!

Latest Arizona adventure

Well, we set off on Thursday afternoon for Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, arrived at Gallup for an overnight stay at 11.30 p.m. ! snow.!

Set off at 7.00 a.m. and the snow became steadily deeper ( bit of an exaggeration that ! ) and we had a hairy moment or two until getting off the main road onto a 20 mile long unmade road to the Canyon !!

We met up with out guides, Navajo archeologists, and had a great day exploring the Canyon ( which incidentally had NO snow ) and learning some interesting "Navajo" stories, most of which are remarkably like our stories like The Tortoise and the Hare. !!!

We "camped" out Saturday night !! it was 18 degrees F ( it was only the second night of my life spent under canvas and will almost certainly be the last !)

I have now thawed out and had a change of schedule, off to Monument Valley today (Monday) then Canyon de Chelly Tuesday / Wednesday before heading back to Phoenix to pick up my Model for Thursday !

tara for now
