2/26/09

My extended lack of blog posts is directly related to the distinct lack of anything of interest going on around here. I guess that's just winter on LI. I've had the opportunity to meet up with a couple of my favorite blog pals (You girls know who you are) which was wonderful, of course. Other than that, I've been out on a few photo shoots, working around the house, doing the mom thing...etc. So much for that.

But, today I am heading out on a short trip to Sedona, AZ. Aaron is out in Tucson now for work, and must be there again on Monday. So, I'm going out today and we'll spend 3 days among the red rocks. I'm racing around doing my last minute organizing and packing. I'm very excited to make this trip.

I was out in the southwest about a million years ago. My parents took the family on one of those cross country road trips as far as AZ. We visited someone from our hometown who was living out there at the time, who was a geologist. Now that I'm mature enough to be interested, I wish I had that kind of guide. But, back then I did appreciate the sheer beauty of it all and I'm very much looking forward to immersing myself in it....if even for a very brief time. I won't make it to the Grand Canyon this time, but I'm hoping that it will whet Aaron's interest in a return trip before long. One of my biggest regrets is that we never took the kids on a cross country jaunt. A roadtrip is my kind of travel!

I think I'm taking more photo gear than clothing. Priorities, right?

Well, at least this should guarantee a couple of days more than worth posting about.

See ya...

How jealous am I?

Have a great time and take lots of pictures (kind of like telling a fish to swim...)

Sedona is one of the most beautiful areas of the country. I'd do just about anything to be able to head out there this time of the year. Please take lots of pictures!

Oh, have a great trip! I love road trips. I'm not sure if you're flying or driving, either way, have a great time.

I'm envious. I remember those red rocks of New Mexico and Arizona when I hitched across the country in 1960. That was on of the most memorable experiences I had. It's beautiful country.

Have a great time.

The trip sounds exciting and a good way to get away from a long LI winter. I'm looking forward to the photos.

And is it too late to take a road trip with your children? The older they get the more they appreciate traveling I think.
