    Thought I'd throw my favorite shots from my run through back in Dec. in here.
    The day started out mostly overcast, yet fairly bright, and the clouds thinned to hazy as the day went on.
    It's a wonderful area for terrain textures and colors, and I'll try to make it at a time with nicer light the next time.
    These will flow from the drive through the parks, from south to north.
    If you haven't been, you owe it to yourself, whatever kind of light you get!

    Nice set - the last time I was at the Painted Desert the primary road was US66 and this wasn't a national park yet. Now I want to go there again.
