On The Road

Nov 16, 2011 by

I spent more than half of my September on the road this year, traveling from bright Las Vegas to dusty Arizona, through the stunning Mesa Verde, and through corn.

So. Much. Corn.

The main destination of this adventure was to see my grandmother Elizabeth, or Bette, as we all know her as, for her ninety-sixth birthday. My grandma Bette lives n Michigan, as do many of my other relatives, and while it may not be California, the state has its own place in my heart.

I embarked on this trip with my parents; in my childhood we never had that station-wagon-across-the-country road trip, and this was our chance. [Except it was in a Prius, and our luggage wasn’t whimsically strapped to the roof of the car.] Being a family of photographers, there were many stops along the side of the road to capture the sights, and these are a collection of moments that I felt needed to be captured. It may be a long time before I stand in the dust of the desert or feel the cool, knowing presence of Mount Rushmore, but I hope these captures bring a small piece of my experience, to you.
