By the end of April, it had been almost (gulp) six months since my last vacation, and man, was I ready to get out of town, especially after being tied up at home through most of the winter. The desert was calling. This is just a very abbreviated recap with a small sample of harvested imagery. I am planning on a full trip report later, but that will take awhile to put together. A little more than half the trip was spent with my friend and co-worker, Tad Bowman, who has posted some images on his site. The main locations visited included the San Rafael Swell, Capitol Reef, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Grand Canyon. The trip was most excellent and I’m pleased with a number of pictures I came away with.
