I promised to take you on this trip with me, and there is no better way to do that than to share my travel journal pages from my iPad Journal.
As is always the case, I have my Stillman & Birn journal and my watercolors with me, and there a few things from today that I plan to sketch. But, it was a driving day, and I won’t get that done soon.
This is why I also keep an iPad journal – everything goes into it easily so the whole trip gets recorded.
Just when I had the van packed, I went into the garage for a roll of paper towels to go on the trip and found yet another plumbing pipe leak. My plumbing karma is really terrible, but that is a story for some other day. This day, I left Mark to deal with it, and got on the road.
Stopped in Albuquerque for lunch at Mimi’s Cafe which is a favorite.
Mimi’s also has the coolest ladies room in the world. Copper sinks and beautiful skies everywhere.
When I first started Guerrilla Photography, this was one of the first places I found with such a treasury of details.
I did not want to make the whole drive to Tucson in one piece, so I decided to visit Silver CIty, NM, an art town in the Southwest of the state. I had not been there in almost 20 years and wanted to know how it has changed.
The last time I went, we took a very mountainous route, Hwy 152, shown where the 6:10 is written on the map. No thanks to that in Winter, so I took my usual route to Deming and then went up. That is a piece of road that is new to me, (I think).
Reservations at a really beautiful Comfort Inn, and the front desk directed me to this place . . .
And that was pretty much it for this day.
I enjoyed it. Did you?
