Let's just talk (upcoming blog stuff)

Hey guys, here's an idea. Let's just talk a little. This is something I don't do often enough here, just discuss what's happening and what's coming up on the blog.

First of all, I went to Aspen for my quick overnight camping trip and photo extravaganza. You will be hearing about it next week, and seeing some of the awesome pictures that I drove three plus hours, camped out, got up at 4 AM, and stood in the cold for five hours to get. Here's a teaser photo for you, taken by fellow photog I met at the lake.

That's the lens I rented from It was a thing of beauty.

This week is the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. My husband, my brother, and I are headed there this weekend and I can't wait. Not only are the photo ops amazing, but it's just kind of a magical thing, being amongst all those balloons as they lift off. Look for some (hopefully) awesome photos next week.

This year we are camping at a KOA for the fiesta, a franchise that I have nothing but respect for after camping at several of them along Route 66. The greatest thing about them is, because they cater mostly to RVs, they almost always have tent spots available, and the spots are good. The fact that they have showers, wi-fi, security and a little store is just icing on the cake. The one in Albuquerque actually has a swimming pool, hot tub, and mini golf! A lot of them also have little cabins that you can rent, if you're not a tent camper or an RV camper.

Post-fiesta, I'm headed over to Prescott to hang out. I thought I would do a little photo tour post. It is a charming town, after all, and fall is a great time to see it. I might stop by the pumpkin festival, too, even though I'm flying back, and I doubt they would let me take a pumpkin home in my carry-on. Maybe one of those really tiny ones.


I have a few other things up my sleeve, too. Stay tuned!! What's going on with everyone else?


  1. This time for the Balloon Fiesta we'll actually leave for the afternoon instead of hanging around for like 8 hours waiting for the glow. :-P
