Sunset Shadow and Reflection

The last stop on our 11 day journey was a beautiful lodge along the Colorado River outside Moab, Utah.  Watching the ever changing reflections and shadows of the red cliffs at sunset is an experience we’ll never forget.

11 Days, 7 States

20141020-DSC_5733_melinda_anderson-Edit-2We have just returned from our 11 day road trip, during which we managed to drive through 7 states: Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Utah.  Another relevant stat: we have only been home 5 days in October so far.  I am pretty tired, even though I did none of the driving.

I didn’t think that I would do a ton of photography this trip, except for some family photos in Kansas and some shots of the fall foliage in Vail- and random shots along the way. Although I was very busy and actually had two days where the camera was not brought out (almost unheard of in my life), I had some fantastic photo ops- including during an unplanned brief sojourn in Utah!  I have lots of photos to cull and edit, and you will be seeing many of them over the next week or so.

That’s Arches National Park in the photo- and no, that’s not our car. :-)

Covered Bridge

Vail!

I’ve been taking a lot of photos- but we’re having so much fun that it’s hard to find time to post photos.  Here’s a couple from beautiful Vail, where we’ve been living it up and, unfortunately, getting used to a luxurious lifestyle.  Back to reality as we head home!

Here are a couple shots of Vail Village, where you feel like you are in the alps:

View from one of at least two covered bridges crossing Gore Creek in the village.

Trunk

My friend, Debbie, has so much cool stuff at her house! Last week I photographed some of her art work and managed to sneak in a few shots of some of her garage sale treasures. So far. there has been not much time for photography during our Kansas trip, so here are three I took last week of Debbie’s antique trunk..
