For those of you spending your day in a cubicle hunched over your keyboard staring at a computer screen (me), this timelapse video of Yosemite is worth the 4 minutes. The stars. The fog. Half Dome. Awesome.
About a year an a half ago one of our very best friends from college moved with her husband, who is a doctor, out to the middle of the Navajo Nation in Arizona so he could work at the local hospital. Last Thursday three of us met up in Albequerque and made the four hour drive out to Chinle (pronounced chin-lee) to visit the two of them along with their two year old daughter and brand new baby, who was born in September.
Our hosts were gracious enough to let us stay for three whole days (God knows why). Our weekend consisted of:
crowns, tutus, ballet, and bollywood aerobics (it’s the two-year-old’s favorite dance video)
along big canyon walls
to the bottom of canyon de chelly
playing in the dirt
a trip to the swap meet (us in front of the house getting ready to go)
a drive through the desert
to monument national park
where i learned that if you get out of the car to take pictures of goats
your “friends” will drive about 8 miles an hour 5 feet in front of you so you can’t get back in the car, which is really fun
there were some amazing rocks
and amazing colors
and amazing skies
and amazing (?) people
it was a fantastic trip. i miss everyone. thanks to paul and lisa for hosting. more pics to be posted here shortly.
