photography, random thought, travel, writing

the long road home

i didn’t want to leave telluride and the cool, mountain air last week.  traffic, 100 degree weather, and “work” awaited.

luckily though, in between, i would have the chance to see the southwest u.s. through my windshield on a 19 hour drive back to texas…





i’ve never been to great sand dune national park.  it’s not the best n.p. i’ve ever been to, but it’s an incredible natural wonder.  i’m glad i made the side trip.








fortunately, i only have to be back in dallas for a few days.  then it’s back to vermejo park ranch, new mexico!
