Upload & Sell: Off
So my wife and I made it back home last night. We were on the road for 210 days and put about 45,000 miles on the car I'm not too sure what I'm going to do with myself but I got the travel bug, BAD. We have some plans to go abroad near the end of summer but it's all up in the air right now.
If I'm certain for one thing it's that when I do work, it will be with the sole purpose of funding more traveling. After experiencing what I did there's just no way I can stay tied down at one place for the next 40 years of my life. Hopefully we just hit the lottery ; )
So I have two shots to post. The first one is from Lower Antelope. We decided to re-visit here one more time before heading back home. I think the 2 hour photo price went up. Last time I was here I thought it was around 20 dollars but this time it was 42. Planned on spending 4 hours in there but I didn't have enough cash. Just as well though, it was hotter than hell.

The shot below was from the drive back home. We passed Denver airport just as that tornado they had there a few days ago touched down. We had to drive through quite a storm to get to camp. When we finally made it through, we noticed another storm system forming in front of us. It happened to be right over the exit we needed to take to get to camp. By this time, a tail cloud that was about a mile long had formed and was feeding this huge updraft of clouds. I've never been around these parts during storm season and I have never witnessed a storm like this in my life. It seemed to have all the makings of a tornado, even though one never materialized. Still, I got goosebumps just looking at this thing. I shot here until it decided to dump rain and hail on us. We were almost blown off the highway a few times trying to retreat to the closest McDonald's. It was one heck of a way to end the trip.
