golden haze.









Did I mention we drove to and from Utah? It's a long but beautiful drive. On the way home, we took the Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway and made a couple stops at Cliff Dwellers and the Navajo Bridge. It was quite the welcome back into our home state... Arizona is pretty freakin' awesome.

(Next time I'm hiking a few miles so I can see this amazing sight.)

  15. You take great pictures. You eat pretty food. That's pretty cool too you don't need a side of ranch like me. :)

    Okay, Arizona is the coolest. Don't forget you don't ever have to change your clocks there too.

    Your pictures are pretty amazing. I bet people would buy these for big bucks.

  17. haze as in hazel? ;)

    was it by chance that you captured that cute little lightening bolt in that bridge picture? or did you have the shutter open for a while? i'm pretty amused by that, but maybe not as amused as clara was when she got to wave hi to uncle clint while driving down the road this morning.

  26. I love driving through Cliff Dwellers, in part because of the mile of highway adopted by "Scary Larry."

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that drive is pretty incredible. I think the girls who I drove it with didn't get it, I kept saying "look how pretty those cliffs are!" and nobody said anything. haha!
