Westward, ho! :)

Southwestern landscape 2

Westward, ho!

Finally, the weekend's here!!!!! It's been tough to get into the work mode (or any mode, for that matter) after the break and our home right now is a passionate paean to chaos........don't they have a saying like no one needs a vacation more than the person who just had one? Tell me about it!!!! Hope you are managing post-holiday blues better than me.....

Going back to images from the trip, I haven't had a chance to upload most of them..These shots are from the car as we drove westward from Texas panhandle to New Mexico........Gradually, Texan fields and cattle ranches gave way to harsher and drier landscape and though my sun-phobic skin cringes at the mere thought of temperatures there in summer, Arka loved the big Western sky, the sun-baked land and the roads...........and when he's happy, I am happy too :)

This is what Alberta looks like in the fall...just add a few foothills of the Rockies in the background!! :)

The wide open spaces just make me feel like I can take a deep breath.
Its always hard to get back to reality. Things will smooth out eventually. In the meantime just look and your gorgeous photos and take a mini trip back there.

There's really something grandiose about these vast landscapes, Moi. I know. That's what I felt when we were in Arizona over Thanksgiving weekend!
