John,

You beat us to check-in, but we're here now. Just look for the white Taurus X

I'm thinking we're going to be having great photo weather.

Hi... I will not be getting to Kanab until late on the 12th... probably will not see anyone until the 13th unless I manage to get there early... we shall see.

I am very much looking forward to meeting all of you.

I will be at Aiken's Lodge from the 12th to the 14th... after that, who knows. LOL!!!

I'll expect you all will have war stories to tell by the time I get there. :)

Please keep me advised of your activities... I can be reached by cell at this number:

Goin' to "THE WAVE"!!!

Thank you Becky... Thank you John!

Being the good people that they are, they secured enough permits to both North and South Coyote this morning through the lottery system at the Paria Ranger Station that they included me in both permit areas. And they did it all while I was across "the street" merrily capturing desert flora and geology imagery and totally oblivious to that unlikely possibility.

So tomorrow we are taking ATVs into South Coyote for photography there and then hiking into The Wave for photography there. Both John and Becky were big winners in the lottery scoring 6 total permits each for both areas. I doubt that happens very often.

Eat your hearts out, DPCers!

Six permits each! And to think I canceled out this year. You will have a blast I'm so envious.

We actually got 6 permits total, I was in the drawing for 3 and so was Becky. This was day 3 that we submitted so we both had 3 numbers each, for the 10 permits available we got 6, lucky. Becky's husband Greg doesn’t know this yet, but I was down on my knees in my room last night praying for this fine result.

That's right, Greg. John was down on his knees in hopes of getting a permit, but I doubt he was praying. ;-)

We've made it home, and I can finally look at my images on a "big" computer screen. Steve will be staying on for a while.

A big hearty "Thanks!" to Becky and John and all you folks who wimped out on this photo safari for giving me the opportunity to photograph "The Wave" and other geologic wonders in the Coyote Buttes permit area of northern Arizona.

We had a special day filled with ATV fun and memorable photography.

It was a great kickoff to my Grand Staircase photography study even though "The Wave" is not part of my project. :)

Friday, June 12th was a full day.

We got up for the early light and headed to the Hoodoos across from the Paria Ranger Station where we saw some great formations and a coyote.

It was time to head over to the Page, Arizona area and visit the Horseshoe Bend.

Antelope Canyon was the next step. We joined the photo tour. Unfortunately, it was very busy at the best time of day.

The light was gorgeous even though it was a bit overcast. We even stopped at Rattlesnake Canyon on the way back.

That evening, we grabbed my daughter and her friend, and hiked up Squaw Trail above Kanab. It was a fantastic view of the city.

Just got home a couple of hours ago, what a great GTG! Of course it is always great to see Becky and it was a joy to finally meet Steve in person. Thanks again for a great time.

Only had time to process a few but here is one of my favorites so far.
