My Grand Circle Tour
« on: February 03, 2008, 06:47:05 AM »

I recently completed a photographic holiday following roughly the traditional “grand circle” of the American South West. We didn’t visit the Grand Canyon South Rim or Bryce Canyon, but otherwise our tour took in most of the traditional sites, and several less traditional ones as well.

I've posted an article on my web site, with some of the better shots, and my views on what worked well, and what less well:

Thanks Andrew, this was helpful.  I'm headed to Capitol Reef in the Torrey/Escalante area in april.  Southern Utah ranks as one of my all time top places to photograph.  eleanor

Andrew, thank you for sharing your experience and your photos. The southwest is a great place and it looks like you had wonderful time.

FYI, it's Edward Abbey, not Edwin.

 Thanks for all the supportive comments. Apologies for the error on Edward's name - I'll fix this shortly.

Hi Andrew:

We're planning a similar trip later this year.  Your trip report was most helpful, especially the comment about the crowds on weekends.   BTW, very nice images in your report.
cheers....
