Ragged Old Flag

Everywhere you drive in this country you encounter houses and cars adorned with pristine flags. People here just love to have old glory waving out on their front porch or off the back of their vehicle. I have been looking for a tattered flag and it has taken me most of my trip to find one! This star spangled banner was raised next to the gate of a rural property on a highway somewhere near the Utah-Arizona border.

Looking at rocks...

I spent the last few days driving through the Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, and The Grand Canyon looking at some incredibly impressive rocks!

This area was extensively documented by Ansel Adams and I couldn't stop thinking about all his fantastic imagery as I was approaching these landscapes, hoping that they would live up to the expectations I had after seeing his images. Luckily I was surprised, all the landscapes. I had found somewhere that no picture can possibly do justice!
