scenes of the american southwest

by Stacy

Did you miss me? Are you still there??? I am now over halfway through my trek across the western United States. My dad drove to Denver with me, then I swapped co-pilots and am traveling with my arch-nemesis from Denver to California. Today was our first drive together. She only tried to kill me once – luckily I was awake and caught her weak attempt to careen down a twisting mountain road. Muhahahaw.

We did leave quite early in the morning to try to get some pictures at Garden of the Gods near Colorado Springs. Some turned out better than others.

The rock formations are dramatic and lovely, and the park has flowers and wildlife and a great view of the Rocky Mountains.

This one was a lucky shot, but I am amused by it!

We are now ensconced in a lovely hotel room in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Tomorrow – to Arizona!

Thank you! The beautiful scenery does the hard work – we just have to aim. =)

These are also straight-out-of-camera with absolutely no editing.
