Steven and I drove through the most amazing part of Utah. Not the big National Parks but the gigantic and less traveled Capital Reef National Park, and The Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument. While Bryce and Zion National Parks were jammed, we saw maybe 5 other cars each day, and even fewer hikers. It's rugged, sparse, and awesome. The geology is beyond belief. A big shout out to my Ranger Station co-worker Lynn who had just done this trip and told me about the exceptional, right off the tree fresh peach pies they make at the Homestead in Capital Reef park. That alone is a reason to do this adventure.
Once again, a wonderful variety of images. You have captured a different mood with these. I sense sense a dark and somber overtone in each one. I hope that is what you were gong for. I like the wagon picture the best because the center of the image is brighter that the rest and this give my eye a place to go.
