Memory Lane – Oct 18, 2008

I’m reposting a day from my trip to Four Corners, from another blog, every Wednesday.

Day Eleven

We started out with breakfast at the hotel, then packed up and checked out. It was a 10 minute drive to my cousin Tami’s house.

We met David and the kids, and had a great but short visit with them. David showed us his pictures. He and I got to talk about photography, that was rough. ;) We made our way to Sky Harbour, where US Airways informed me that ripping a handle right out of the side of your suitcase was just normal wear and tear.   (more…)


Livingston Tuesday Night

I wrote about the Murray Hotel, where we stayed in Livingston, in a previous post. Hollywood director Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch, Straw Dogs) was a frequent guest at The Murray, and lived there the last 7 years of his life.
Elevator Control

We had dinner in the building on Tuesday night. A quick elevator ride down to the lobby and outside, a few steps south and back in the 2nd Street Bistro. I first heard of the Murray and the 2nd Street Bistro on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations television show.  (more…)

Day Ten

Another day deviating from the plan. We had breakfast at the hotel and Mom and I walked up the street to look at a shop. When we got back Sherri was down the hill with her camera out. We watched for a while, she was obviously concentrating on something.

Small Lizard

I’m not sure if it is a Plateau Fence Lizard (Sceloporous tristichus) or a Common Lesser Earless Lizard (Holbrookia maculata ).
We all got our cameras out and tried to get a picture of her. I got a few frames and Mom got one, but Sherri got the most. As you might be able to tell by the end of the brick where the lizard is standing, they are very small.  (more…)

Day Nine

Slept in today until after 8am, got up and went downtown for breakfast. We went to the Grand Canyon Cafe, on Old Route 66, it looked like and was an old timey eatery. There were mostly locals there and we were the only tourists, great food.

After we wandered around Historic Downtown Flagstaff and enjoyed the sights. (more…)

Day Eight

I wanted to shoot the sunrise at Grand Canyon so I got up at 5:15am but I forgot to get everything prepped the night before. So I lost time and was at the bus stop by 5:36 in time to see the bus leave. After waiting a half hour for the next one we motored to the Information Centre and I went to the far side to catch the bus to Yaki Point where the map at the bus stop said it was. There I waited another half hour to see the second bus bypass the stop where I waited. I figured out the bus was going to the same bus stop where I got off of the first bus. So I ended up arriving at Yaki Point at 6:45am about 10 minutes after sunrise. Oh well, shit happens. I shot until 8:00am and I still got some great pictures.
