These are some photos from my trip to the Southwest this past October.  It's really a good place to go if you like to take pictures, since you can pretty much point the camera in any random direction, snap the shutter, and wind up with an impressive picture.  If you actually put some effort into it, so much the better.  I'm the kind of person that doesn't take many pictures throughout the year, but then I take way too many when I go on vacation.  I had a tendency to do this even before I got a digital camera, but there was always the cost of film and getting it developed to think about, which managed to subdue me a little.  Well, this was my first vacation since I went digital, and in the week-and-a-half I was out there, I managed to take over 1,000 pictures.  Electrons are free, after all!  Yeah.  OK, well that's just great, but now try to pick the best ones out to actually show someone.  So here are a few that aren't necessarily the best ones, but just some that caught my eye as I quickly scanned through the sea of thumbnails.
Weird Rocks
Some more Road Runner-type stuff.
Another Arch
I can't even remember what this arch was called. It's just one of the 2,000 or so arches at Arches National Park.
Out There
This just seemed like a cool place to stand to have your picture taken.
Rock Fin
This is my friend Bill and brother Scott standing on the edge of a rock fin we had to walk across on the Devil's Garden hike at Arches National Park.
Delicate Arch
This is one of the more spectacular arches in Arches National Park. Unfortunately we didn't have time to hike close to it. If you look closely, there is a little spec on the rock face below it, which is some crazy dude walking out there.
Unnamed Rock Formation
Many of the interesting rock formations in the Southwest have names – like Balanced Rock, Castle Rock, Owl Rock, etc. This one, at Arches National Park, oddly, has none. Perhaps, if you use your imagination, you could come up with your own name for it.
Capitol Dome
This rock formation must be what gave Capitol Reef National Park its name.
Castle Rock
This rock formation at Capitol Reef National Park is called Castle Rock, for obvious reasons.
