Our Trip to the Southwest
December-1999  Heath and I (Ray) spent 2 weeks mostly in Arizona, Utah and Colorado taking 24 rolls of film and absorbing all the beautiful scenery. We experienced everything from 0 F. (-18 C.) to 70 F. (21 C.) It never rained and had not really snowed much yet. We went from 1000 ft. elevation up to 10,000 feet. Cold at night and warm in the daytime sun. We experienced some of the cleanest air in the U.S. at Bryce Canyon and saw such deep blue sky it was unreal. We crossed the Navajo Indian land, experienced another culture and saw the rare Bald Eagle in the wild.  Such extremes of beauty and climate.
