Wow! What a trip. A close friend (whom I met shooting a wedding in Ohio two years ago!) invited me to spend Christmas with his family & friends down in Tucson, AZ. Instead of flying, I rented a car and piled in my road bike and mt. bike and hit the road for an awesome adventure through the southwest. I stopped at Zion and Grand Canyon National Parks among other places. The week in AZ was incredible.. such amazing people! I feel like I'm part of their family now. What a blessing! After leaving AZ I headed north again and was able to (very randomly) meet up with some other close friends and spend two nights with them in Moab, UT. (A random Facebook post led to all of us connecting.. so cool!). The night skies this trip were amazing. Especially the last two nights in Moab. Almost full moons, plus incredible stars before moonrise. It was really fun to play with some nighttime photography. It was an excellent 10 days!
