American Southwest - 2009

Welcome!  We hope you enjoy the pictures and stories we collected on our trip through the National Parks of the Four Corners -- Canyon de Chelley (Chinle, AZ), Mesa Verde (Cortez, CO), Arches and Canyonlands (Moab, UT), and Rocky Mountain NP (Estes Park, CO).

As an incentive for you to 'explore', some of these images are 'salted' with hotspots that can give you close-ups or different angles on the main image.  These are identified by asterisks (*).  Poke around.

The original images are 3648 x 2736 pixels (about 1Mb each) but the images you will see here on the website have been reduced to 600x450 to conserve space and speed the page loads.  If you want your own full-size copy of any of these images just drop me a line.
