Have Camera, Will Travel

Close up of the Lake McDonald beach.

For the next two months I'll be posting intermittently. I have a good excuse - I'm starting a sabbatical next week. During my sabbatical, I'll be traveling around the Southwest USA. For the first month, I'll be spending a lot of time with family and friends. But for the second month, I'll be hanging about the sights of southern Utah and Northern Arizona. As I'll be camping a lot, I'll have a hard time connecting to the internet on a regular basis. I will probably use my iPhone to post photos taken on the iPhone (limited by available 3G cell connections).

My rough itinerary, photographically speaking, is as follows:
  • Whitesands National Monument, NM
  • Chiricahua National Monument, AZ
  • Saguaro National Park, AZ
  • Joshua Tree National Park, CA
  • Santa Catalina Island, CA
  • Las Vegas NV area
  • Zion National Park, UT
  • Bryce National Park, UT
  • North Rim Grand Canyon, AZ
  • Arches National Park, UT
  • Monument Valley, AZ
Any suggestions of other "can't miss" locations?

What a fabulous trip. Two suggestions, near White Sands is Ruidoso and Lincoln County, very different from the rest of NM; and I've always loved Taos. Have a great time.

Those beach rocks are so beautiful, wet and shinny. I'd have my pockets full.
When do you plan to be at the North Rim?

Gaelyn - That part of my trip is still in flux. I'll be in the general area between Oct 18th - Oct 31st. My best guess is Oct 26th-ish.

Great colors! Reminds me of this photo that I posted the other day.
