    Okay Aggie,

    I'm taking you up on that offer! I know Carley wants to do some night shooting and safety in numbers is a good idea.
    I will PM you before I leave.

    I hope you have fun shooting 4x5. That Red Rock Canyon sounds like a good place to start shooting at.

    Thanks Kate.

    I hope you get to meet up with Aggie. She's a neat person! We met in Ca. Aggie took me to Nappa Valley to a cool mill for some good shooting. On the way back, she suggested we make a quick stop at the Mumm winnery where they had the most Ansel Adams' prints on exhibit I've ever seen in one place. I couldn't stop talking about it for a month.

    Great suggestion Tim! I was thinking more about the desert... city shots hadn't even entered my mind.

    Thanks,

    The Valley of Fire is a great place to spend the day. The road in isn't marked very well but just keep going until you get to the park entrance. Be sure to take some color film as the rocks do catch fire at sunset. Also lots of petroglyphs. Watch out for rattlers and don't feed the ground squirrels as they will quickly become pests. There is an old movie set somewhere towards the back of the park which you can hike to on the way to the sand dunes. I was carrying a 60 lb. pack the last time I was there so allow yourself plenty of time for the hike in and out and be sure to take some water and high energy snacks.

    P.S. When you get to the turn off to VOF there will be a little casino and store at the road entrance on the left, don't take photos there as they may want to take your camera. I actually saw this happen to a group of young girls who happened to take a snap shot inside the store. What jerks!

    That is on the Moapa Indian reservation. They might have the same laws as the Hopi's that forbid cameras on their land.
