Before we headed out, I set up the tri-pod and conducted an impromptu photo shoot in the driveway. I've had this idea in mind ever since I used a piece of junk mail with a similar photo on my FUN vision board back in 2014. I love how this photo shows us all ready to go . . . and the fact that no one will ever mistake me for a "light pack-er."
The first couple of days of our trip took us out of Dallas and all the way to the western tip of Texas. From El Paso, we drove through the southern part of New Mexico and into Arizona, where we most of the trip. We stopped for a couple of days in New Mexico on the way home.
Along the way we had lots of adventures (and some misadventures), which I'll be sharing over the next few weeks as I process the 1,735 photos we took (using our small digital camera, the DSLR and both our iPhones). One of the best things about digital photography is how we can take lots of photos, then choose the ones we want to keep to share and scrapbook. We can take photos just for FUN or INSPIRATION, too!
Some of you may remember in one of my INSPIRATION posts last year that I mentioned how we can find color INSPIRATION in hotel hall carpeting. So, of course, now (when I remember) I snap photos of hallways, too!
I hope you'll join me over the next few weeks as I relive the memories from this trip. I'll be sharing about the two items I checked off my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 list, the delicious food, the unique accommodations, the interesting attractions, and lots more!
