The Great Mega Western Photo Tour!!!

Howdy y’all!  I am writing this from Jackson, Wyoming while my laundry is washing.  I am in the middle of what I like to call the “Great Mega Western Photo Tour”!!!  Intrepidly I have embarked on the following route:

Los Angeles –> Zion National Park, Utah –> Telluride, CO (pit stop at Telluride Bluegrass Festival!!!!) –> Moab, UT / Arches National Park / Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah –> Timpanogos, Uinta National Forest, Utah –> Jackson, WY (a week in Grand Teton / Yellowstone National Parks) –> Sawtooth Range, Idaho –> John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Oregon –> Redwood National Park, CA –> back home to Mountain View, CA!

So here I find myself in Jackson, Wyoming waiting on my laundry and downloading photos from the past couple of days, including a beautiful sunrise shot from this morning in Grand Teton National Park.  This trip has been full of trials and victories.  My car has been overheating and after 2 mechanics and $125 put into it, the problem persists.  I will be renting a car this week for Grand Teton / Yellowstone and then taking my car to the Honda dealer in Idaho on my way home.  Just gotta bite the bullet sometimes.

In the Timpanogos I dropped my cell phone (HTC EVO) and shattered the screen.  What a bummer!  However, I’m sure I got rid of some past negative karma and so I am filled with joy!  I got a screen protector which prohibits me from cutting myself and the phone amazingly still works.

I’ll be posting many more images but I’ve got to go change the laundry over now!  =)  For now, here is a teaser from a sunrise in the San Juan Mountains near Telluride, CO.
