March Through the Southwest

Postby gohike » Tue May 07, 2013 1:50 pm

For my "sabbatical" trip I decided that it was time to revisit the American Southwest, and March seemed like the perfect time to do this first trip, with a digital camera. The other reason behind the trip in March, is that it allowed me to get plenty of great climbing in too, while snow and ice cover the rocks back in Montana.

You can read the trip report here:

Inside of the blog post are links to each location's gallery (as I write about them).

If you want to skip straight to the "Best of" gallery, you can do that here:

Make the jump to go through the online gallery, I ask that you leave comments/criticism or at least give your favorites a thumbs up... THANKS!

If you have questions, ask... I published the camera information with each image and have added full keywords to share just about anything you would want to know about the images.

Happy shooting

Now it's time for the teasers:
