Well, I shot over 5000 images on our 5,000 mile trip. We traveled from Ohio to Canyonland in Utah, then on to visit our son & family in Southern California. From there, we went southeast through Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. David drove every single mile. I offered to drive, but he assured me he was quite happy with me being navigator/photographer.
Just for fun, here are some of the shots I took through the drivers side window.
Just returned from a 5,000 mile trip in our RV out west. More later, but here's a couple of Milky Way shots.

A few favorites from CJ Brown and Old Reid today.
One of my favorite parts of my outtings is helping new wildlife watchers to see the natural world. It was fun showing a couple of hikers the beauty of the bird world!

There was an unusual visitor to Old Reid on Monday.....a Snowy Egret!
While not a rare sighting, even during migration, Snowy Egrets don't often stop here in Clark County, so it was a treat to watch this one in our own local park.
Wind storms, snow storms and other weather activities sometimes drive birds like this Snowy Egret off of their regular migration routes. Here's the map showing their regular and migrational ranges from Cornell's All About Birds site:
Yesterday, the Snowy perched on logs and waded in the shallows at Old Reid. It tried to hang out with the resident Great Blue Heron. When the Great Blue flew to another area of the ponds and landed on a shallow rock bar, the Snowy Egret followed and tried to stay with it. The Snowy Egret's much smaller size can be seen here.
We checked last evening, and did not see the Snowy at Old Reid....no doubt, it is off to join up with fellow Snowys heading to migrational grounds!
