Another Grizzly Bear from last week in Denali National Park, Alaska.
We have taken a few short, 3 to 4 day trips over the last 5 months, but by in large, we have been home working in the office. After two years with a pretty heavy travel schedule in which we spent at least 200 nights away from home, this office time was very needed! We have been able to get caught up, and work on a number of proactive marketing opportunities that we never seem to have time to pursue.
Now I’m looking forward to taking a trip and completely engrossing myself into photography. October is a perfect time to travel – it is wet and dark here in Alaska, fall colors will be gone, but snow has yet to arrive. On the other hand, it is a perfect time in the Southwest – warm days and cool nights, fall colors and few people. The best thing going for Alaska in October is the aurora borealis, but we are still at the bottom of the activity cycle, so like last year, good lights are not nearly as likely.
So where are we going? Good question – we aren’t even sure! We will fly to Palm Springs and go from there. We have some things scheduled in Las Vegas near the end of the month, but before then, I think we will head to Southern Utah – you can’t go wrong there. It is really tempting to return to Zion, as we had such a fun time there last year, but we need new coverage. We are leaning towards Moab – I have spent a couple of days there in the past, but really haven’t scratched the surface of that red rock area. Two weeks there could be really fun and productive. Wherever we go – I should have plenty of new blog material!
