Canyonlands National Park
On the second day of our little Utah adventure [for the more detailed version see Tanya's entry
] we spent most of the day over in Canyonlands National Park
. Canyonlands is a gorgeous park on the Colorado Plateau and is filled with countless canyons and mesas. It's also very windy. Apparently no one comes in the winter as we pretty much had the place to ourselves, the park rangers almost seemed surprised we came in the visitor center to pay and get our map [the entrance post was closed]. I collect NPS maps
, so I had to be able to add it to the huge stack on my bookshelf!

Joshua Tree National Park
Mount San Gorgonio, Joshua Tree National Park, California
There wasn't a cloud in the sky and yet it was definitely worthwhile getting up early. I've photographed a lot of Southern California pictures
not many scenes have motivated me at 6:30 a.m. the way that this one did. Current Mood: refreshed

Great Sand Dunes National Park - Alamosa, CO
Last weekend Tanya and I traveled on a Colorado adventure [thanks to my amazing American Airlines travel voucher]. We pulled in roughly 850 miles and visited two different National Parks on my 'to-do' list, all while suffering from high-altitude sickness and non-sleepage. Our first stop was the Great Sand Dunes National Park, containing North America's tallest sand dunes. I think their tag line should be 'the fastest sand carrying winds in North America' or 'don't exfoliate your skin before you come here park'. Enjoy the pics!
About: Great Sand Dunes National ParkView Gallery
Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is a United States National Park located in the easternmost parts of Alamosa County and Saguache County, Colorado, United States. Originally designated Great Sand Dunes National Monument, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve was created by an act of the United States Congress on September 13, 2004. The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America, rising about 750 feet (230 m) from the floor of the San Luis Valley on the western base of the Sangre de Cristo Range, covering about 19,000 acres. They are likely 12,000 years old.

mojave and colorado
Some of the most interesting photos I've taken lately gathered together here in this pdf....
An account in words and images of a journey through the Colorado and Mojave deserts in March of 2008.
It's 51 pages and 17 megabytes. There are about 30 full page illustrations. It's some of my better photography lately and certainly some of my least controversial. If you like landscapes, this is for you.
It's part II of "Mojave: A Travel Diary in Words and Images" the first part of which can be go by clicking here
Thanks for looking. Please feel free to repost this in your own journals, or send it to friends, copy it to mailing lists, whatever. Anybody you think would be interested.

The Salton Sea - in Color!;
Somehow the Salton Sea
has put itself on my list of places to visit at least once every year, and every time I come by I think I take better pictures as well as appreciate it's uniqueness more. I even broke down and bought the 'Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea
' documentary that I've always been wanting last week. It's a seriously cool place, and if you're anywhere near the SoCal area you really need to go check it out. Here are a few great areas to see when you go down there.
Bombay BeachView Gallery
Bombay Beach is located on the east shore of the Salton Sea and, like many communities along its shores, has had to contend with rising and falling water levels. A berm now protects the west end of the town but a portion of the town beyond the berm is either sunken under water or is half-buried in mud.

When it rains, it pours.
In honor of the crazy weather we've been having here on the left coast (and elsewhere, but I only get to see it here) I decided to make a post about The Day The Amargosa River Attacked.
I'm sure that all of you, being in a community like this, are acquainted with the sometimes fickle nature of the desert, and know that in spite of the generally correct concept that deserts=dry, it does
sometimes rain. Hard. And when that happens, all holy hell breaks loose. If you live on the coastal side of the California watershed, it means the storm drains flood to bursting and lots of little kids/beloved household pets/careless people get swept away.
If you live in the Amargosa valley, ( this happensCollapse )
The Amargosa photos were all taken in late September, 2007, here
, on State Line Road between Death Valley Junction and the CA/NV border.
The Death Valley photo was taken here
, if you zoom out, on the Badwater Road, just off HWY 190.x-posted on my own journal, posted here by request.

Joshua Tree National Park;
Location: Joshua Tree National Park // Google MapsSee the Fine Art Photo Gallery
/ See The Rest of the Joshua Tree Photos
Joshua Tree National Park is located in south-eastern California. Declared a U.S. National Park in 1994, it had previously been a U.S. National Monument since 1936.
The higher, moister, and slightly cooler Mojave Desert is the special habitat of the Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia), from which the park gets its name. In addition to Joshua tree forests, the western part of the park includes some of the most interesting geologic displays found in California's deserts. The dominant geologic features of this landscape are hills of bare rock, usually broken up into loose boulders.
All photos are available as stock photos or matted fine-art prints and make great gifts!

The final gallery set from the Arizona trip a few weeks ago, surprisingly some decent Grand Canyon pictures in here. It was amazingly cold out.All photos are available as royalty-free stock photos or fine-art prints.
Please click on the images for more information
The Grand Canyon is a very colorful, steep-sided gorge, carved by the Colorado River, in the U.S. state of Arizona. It is largely contained within the Grand Canyon National Park — one of the first national parks in the United States. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of the Grand Canyon area, visiting on numerous occasions to hunt Cougars and enjoy the scenery.
The canyon, created by the Colorado River cutting a channel over millions of years, is about 277 miles (446 km) long, ranges in width from 0.25 to 15 miles (0.4 to 24 kilometers), and attains a depth of more than a mile (1,600 m). Nearly two billion years of the Earth's history has been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut through layer after layer of sediment as the Colorado Plateaus have uplifted.

Petrified Forest National Park;
Location: Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona // Google MapsSee the Gallery
/ See The Rest of the Series
Petrified Forest National Park is located in northeastern Arizona, along Interstate 40 between Holbrook and Navajo. It features one of the world's largest and most colorful concentrations of petrified wood, mostly of the species Araucarioxylon arizonicum. The Petrified Forest area was designated a National Monument on December 8, 1906. The Painted Desert was added later, and on December 9, 1962, the whole monument received national park status. The park covers 218,533 acres (341.5 sq mi / 885 km²). Hiking opportunities are limited. The longest established trail in the park extends for only two miles; the others are one mile or less. Backcountry camping and hiking are allowed by permit only. However, a road does extend through much of the park. Landmarks include the Agate House, built of petrified wood, and the Agate Bridge, a petrified log spanning a wash.
The park consists of two large areas connected by a north-south corridor. The northern area encompasses part of the multihued badlands of the Upper Triassic Chinle Formation known as the Painted Desert. The southern area includes colorful terrain as well as several concentrations of petrified wood. Several American Indian petroglyph sites are also found in the southern area.
