Non-Photographic Vacation – Day 4

Another driving day. Due to late coffee and middle-of-the-night work ghosts, I didn’t get much sleep and we got a late start on the day, which involved driving from Kayenta, Arizona to Torrey, Utah. The landscape was magnificent but the light was not, and there were precious few places we could have stopped on many of the narrow highways, so not a lot of photos. Still a good day listening to music and enjoying the magnificent vistas, many of which were recorded as neurochromes.

Yield to friendly ghost clouds. Shot near the northern end of Lake Mead, which is no longer a lake at all. We drove over the Colorado river and it was a trickle.

Natural Bridges National Monument, which is very difficult to photograph in midday light.

I've enjoyed the clouds very much on this trip, except when they shoot lightning at us.

There are a bazillion different types of landscape in Utah. Later, as the storm clouds overtook us near Capitol Reef, we passed through a reasonable facsimile of Mordor, but didn't take any pictures.
