Monument Valley Photo Tour - Sat / Sun May 5th and 6th, 2012

Home Safe ...

The Photo Trekkers have now arrived home safe ... Wow what a great trip.

We flew from Las Vegas to Detroit departing mid afternoon, arriving into Detroit around 8:30 p.m. last night.  After a stop for something to eat we headed home.

Dave and I would like to thank everyone that joined us on this adventure to the southwest.  Our wish is that you have come home, with some great photos, new ideas and thoughts about your photography and most important with new friends.

Dave it was great to have you along again as co-host your energy and excitement about photography is infectious.  Thanks again we all appreciate you contributions to our treks.

Enjoy a selection of final images from the 10 days of our journey, and don’t forget to check back to the Blog on May 17th as the trekkers head to New York City of our next adventure.
