Ted - Keep good notes. Next time we bump into you, I want to trace your journey onto a Delorme Map. I've still got all the notes you gave me on Glacier Park. Your photos are incredible.

Well, ya seen one red rock, ya seen 'em all. [emoticon]

Seriously Ted ... great pics. We're located about 30 minutes from the Needles section of Canyonlands NP and 45 minutes from Arches NP. We're transplants from California and now live in this visual paradise for the very reasons your photos in part depict. Looking forward to more of them.

I'd like to know what type of camera you're using. I need a new one.
Thanks,
Sue
We are leaving today on a 7000 mile cross country trip. Wish us luck. This is only our second trip with the Bigfoot.

Sue,
If you'd like a compact camera with a lot of zoom I would recommend the Panasonic TZ3. It has 7.2 megapixel CCD and 10:1 OPTICAL zoom, Optical Image Stabilization. It'll fit in your pocket. Best of luck on your journey. I guess that'll be at last couple of months trip?
Ted,
Those pictures were fabulous, but just being there must have been a real rush.

Sue - stay safe on your travels and send photos. This time of year, hope you are taking a more southern route. Joe still talks about your pizza

Ted and all you others who enjoy visiting Utah, be sure to see Goblin Valley. There is a nice state park campground with water and tickleicity. The goblins look just like the dancing mushrooms in Disney's movie Fantasia. Fun to walk around among them. It's off the beaten path but we went there after a good friend living in Utah made us promise to visit Goblin Valley. Glad we kept the promise!

See you soon on the American Road !

I use a Canon 2SIS, and Cheryl uses a Canon 3SIS. The pictures are from both of us. Not exactly a high end camera but light easy to use with a 12X zoom and we're both very happy with them.

Have a great trip, if you have any questions about any of the places we've been feel free to ask.

If you go to Goblin State Park, there is a CG in Hanksville about 20 miles to the south. Not a real spruced up place but it'll work. It may have been lost in a flood last year, I don't know about that.
