Gone Fishing! Temporary eStore Closure

Not that I’m much of a fisherman, even though I did just buy waders. But I am a pretty good traveler, and so for the next few weeks I’ll be on a road trip and won’t be able to fill orders for fine art prints and note cards.

I’d ask my assistants to fill orders for me, but they’re worse than useless. Coco and Maxine will undoubtedly be busy finding the best sunny spot in the place to warm themselves, and eCommerce will be the last thing on their little kitty minds.

So where am I going, and why in the world would I need waders if I don’t fish? Well, I’m heading to the desert Southwest to do a photo shoot with my friend Jeremy and his wife Beth. Now you’re really wondering about the waders, aren’t you? Waders in the desert?

Absolutely! We’re planning to hike The Narrows in Zion National Park. Considered one of the premier hikes on the Colorado Plateau, The Narrows is the narrowest section of Zion Canyon, with walls up to a thousand feet tall, and no trail – just the Virgin River which is sometimes just twenty to thirty feet wide. So, this is essentially a long hike in a river!

Shaft of Light, Upper Antelope Canyon, Page, Arizona

During the summer months when the sun is high in the sky, shafts of noontime sunlight often penetrate the deep canyon walls all the way to the canyon floor, at Upper Antelope Canyon, near Page, Arizona.

But that’s not all! No, if we survive the hike through The Narrows, we also plan to shoot images at Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, and several state parks and tribal areas. In fact we’re going back to Page, Arizona to revisit Antelope Canyon. This time we’ll tour Lower Antelope Canyon – the image on the left from Upper Antelope Canyon is from our last trip back in 2012. Wow, has it been that long?

So I know what you’re thinking – both of my readers: “How are we going to survive without your newsletter article every Tuesday while you’re gone?”. Well, don’t worry, I’ve written far enough in advance to keep you occupied while I’m gone. So you see, there’s nothing to worry about! 馃槈

OK, seriously, if you live in Seattle, enjoy this wonderful spring weather while we bake in the desert Southwest, and I’ll be back soon with new images to share. Either that or you’ll read about us on the Zion NP Facebook page!
