Camping in Golden Gate State Park

Our final camping trip for the year in Golden Gate State Park. A fantastic, relaxing weekend with good friends, some playing in the mountains, and generally just doing nothing.

Lake Isabelle wildflower trip

Gregg and I decided to take a quick photo excursion up to Lake Isabelle in the Indian Peaks Wilderness last Sunday to see how the wildflowers were doing. We got some decent shots on the way in to Lake Isabelle, with the high clouds diffusing the light perfectly. Gregg had seen moose (I can’t believe … Continue reading »

A quick day trip to Mount Evans

  I took a half-day to go play in the mountains with Pam Price. Took a quick drive through the clouds to the top of Mount Evans, then back down the mountain to dinner at Kachina Southwestern Grill in Westminster. It’s always great getting back together and catching up! There are more pix from the … Continue reading »

Some pix from the Annual Steamboat Trip

The annual Steamboat trip with the Lowrimores in late fall/early winter this year was over the Thanksgiving day holiday. Five days of fun with friends, just relaxing, playing in the mountains (not on ski slopes). There’s really not much snow up here yet, but we come up here often enough that we know where to … Continue reading »

2012 Photo Trip – Day 5 – Monument Valley to Phoenix

Day 5 of our trip begins with shooting sunrise pictures from the balcony of the hotel and the news that a fairly significant winter storm was coming in and planning to dump 4-8 inches of snow in Flagstaff. I did some preliminary scouting and figured we could drive to the east a little, then head … Continue reading »

2012 Photo Trip – Day 4 – Monument Valley

Day 4 started poorly. Kash wasn’t feeling to good last night, and today wasn’t feeling good at all. We stopped at Safeway for Starbucks coffee, and Gregg picked up some Oscillococcinum (homeopathic cold/flu medicine) and we started our 2 1/2 hour drive to Monument Valley (Tsé Bii Ndzisgaii) . I’d never heard of Oscillococcinum before, but … Continue reading »

2012 Photo Trip – Day 3 – Horseshoe Bend & Lower Antelope Canyon

Day 3 of our trip brings us to the part that Gregg was most looking forward to: The Slot Canyons. Most of yesterday, whenever we found something narrow and vertical, he’d shout out “Slot Canyons!” We started the day with a hearty breakfast at the Courtyard in Page at about 8:30, thinking that the best … Continue reading »

2012 Photo Trip – Day 2 – Vermillion Cliffs National Park

Day 2 on the photography trip was an improvised trip around the Vermillion Cliffs National Park. Gregg, Kash and I REALLY wanted to get into “The Wave”, but it’s only available by permit, and they only permit 10 people PER DAY into that area. We found out at 10am on Friday that if we could … Continue reading »

2012 Photo Trip – Day 1 – Grand Canyon

After a year and a half of no photo trips at all, I’ve been talking to my friend Gregg about a new photo excursion for 2012. We discussed going back to Arches and Canyonlands in Utah, and in starting to plan that trip, ended up adding Monument Valley, Grand Canyon and a few other places … Continue reading »

A Santa Barbara Picture Weekend

Since I brought the good camera equipment from home for the Christmas holiday, and had a weekend to hang around Santa Barbara, I decided to do a little photography on the side. For the first day, I drove up to East Camino Cielo, back through Solvang/Buelton to Nojoqui Falls, then back down the 101 into … Continue reading »
