Here's the update. I will be heading west in 14 hours. I have a very early departure tomorrow and will fly to Sacramento via Dallas to pickup where I left off in my travels in August.
Everything is booked, bags are just waiting to be closed and open to add the last minute stuff that I almost always forget.
I will be covering the entire San Francisco Bay Area and more of Northern California on this trip departing September 16 and returning to Chicago on October 7. This trip will be very intense as there are many customers to visit in a 3 week period. See the approximate travel map above.
I will get back from this trip for 1 night and will get away for a bit of vacation to Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta and the Grand Canyon. This is a trip I have always wanted to take and I am really looking forward to these uniquely American photographic opportunities.
I really appreciate your comments when I am on the road especially. You give me much to read when I am away and your ideas often spark new adventures and sidetrips along the way. You will never really know how much that helps pass the time on these longer treks.
So, fasten your seat belts ... and get ready for another trip to California. I always look for things that I have never seen or photographed before ... and it's really cool being totally clueless as to the new opportunities that can jump out in front of you to the sound of the blarring horns behind you.
My weekend plans at the moment are going to put me near Merced, CA so I think I will try to go to Yosemite. The following two weekends will be in the San Francisco Bay area. I gotta get to Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge ... and the Fish Market ... and uh, stay tuned!
