All the other photographers left Death Valley, but we stayed behind. On our way to the Eureka Dunes we got a flat. The funny thing is that it wasn't due to a sharp rock on the dirt road. It was a metal spike. Lucky that we got a puncture kit from Wallmart right before Death Valley, so we were able to have it fixed in half an hour and keep going. [11/25/2011]
Back to "civilization" from a crazy fun hangout with 50 google+ photographers in the desert for 3 days. Tonight going back out to the desert on our own for another 2 days. Sunrise shoots at 5am driving 90mph from one side of the valley to another, off roading in a canyon - fun stuff.
Yellowstone can be seen in a few days, which is how long it takes the tourist buses to drive around to all the overlooks, let the tour out for 20 minutes and move on. Yet, if you are not concerned with checking sights of a list, you can spend days and weeks visiting each place, [...]

Winter caught up to us again. Skipping Bryce and going to Zion, coming back in a few days when its sunny. Holed up in a motel in Cedar City, Utah. Feels like a chase movie: shady truckers drinking outside, a 17 year old girl in pink tights and hooker make-up nervously smoking next door, heavy snow coming down. Just waiting till cops come blasting in, or terminator crashes through the wall :) [11/6/2011]
