I can’t believe we are already hitting the road again this weekend. We didn’t really allow for enough time in the office, but that’s ok, we can’t miss this time of year! I’m really excited about our upcoming travels.
We are going to fly down to Palm Springs and pick up our trailer. Then we will spend about 5 days in the Mojave Desert, I hoping to photograph baby quail in much better light then I did last year. I’m also going to spend a little time in an area where there have been bobcat and cougar sightings – I know that is a long shot.
Next we will spend about a week in the Vegas area adding to our travel coverage. I particularly would like to spend some time at Red Rock State Park.
The highlight of our trip will be the month we will spend in the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area. We have passed through the area and stopped briefly in the fall, but we have never been there in the spring, nor have we been able to invest this kind of time. I hoping to get lots of baby wildlife, and some good landscape opportunities as spring takes over that region. It should be a lot of fun.
We should be back to Alaska by the 4th of July, and then I will head down to the Southeast Alaska Panhandle to add to our stock coverage, and for some assignment work.
I’m reluctant to share our plans because they tend to change so often, but that is the plan for now. As an example, we had the same plan last year, but after a couple of days in the Mojave Desert we changed plans and I drove straight from Palm Springs to Alaska for an assignment.
I will continue to post to the blog as I travel much like I did this winter, but it will be a little more sporadic due to the long days and limited Internet access in some places.
