Red Rock Canyon, 2009

In this continuing review of my cross-country adventure one year ago, here's some images from 3/15/09. Our seat-of-the pants sight-seeing had taken us many cool places. As the week wound down we weren't really ready to be 'home'. The Road is home to some. From Pisgah, we found Red Rock Canyon state park. It was a beautiful morning and we went for a hike.

     You belong among the wildflowers.
     You belong in a boat out at sea.
     You belong with your love on your arm.
     You belong somewhere you feel free.

     (Tom Petty, Wildflowers, 1994)

Then we were back on the highway. It's a long drive from Nashville to Sacramento.
     Aw bid the years good bye, you cannot still them.
     Well ya cannot turn the circles of the sun.
     Well ya cannot count the miles until you feel them.
     And ya cannot hold a lover that is gone.

     (Townes Van Zandt, Snowin' On Raton, 1987)

California is much more full of people, and once we descended into the valley, there was no turning back. We bought some whiskey and coke and stayed the night at a regional park on a reservoir, Lake Success.

There are now even more in the entire album, this day beginning at image #37.
