Weekend in Moab

Last weekend (October 9-11) I traveled down to Moab for a photographer's gathering on Saturday---a picnic in Rotary Park where I had the opportunity to visit with host Bred Edge, Scott Bacon, Bob Falcone, Chuck Peacock, and Eric Vaughan. Mostly, though, it was a chance to get to some warmer weather for a few days and make some photographs. I arrived late Friday afternoon and was dismayed to see that there were no clouds and, no snow on the La Sal mountains. I car camped at Horse Thief campground north of Canyonlands NP and the state park---Dead Horse Point, where I wanted to be before daylight to set up to photograph dawn at the overlook. Later in the morning I hiked into one of my favorite places in Moab---little knownn Mill Creek Canyon. After the early afternoon picnic, I went to to photograph Fisher Towers and got there in time for some great clouds and an incredible sunset. Early Sunday I hiked to the Delicate Arch viewpoint for a different look at that famous arch. Headed home later in the day, I even came upon a peaceful scene of sheep in a meadow north of Meeker.
