In August 2000 I had the good fortune to take a whirlwind trip by van from St. Louis to Las Vegas. It was a marathon drive through Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Kansas. The scenery was so awsome that I spent five days just staring out the window, pointing, exclaiming, and sometimes trying to capture what I was seeing on film. Here is just a sampling of the pictures I took and could have taken. They can't begin to convey the sheer immensity of this land, the widely divergent habitats we saw, the hardiness of the life that lives in them, or the amazing works of man himself.
There is just no way to break this up into little quick loading pages without loosing the amazement of the journey, so please bear with me. There's 26 pictures here and the whole page takes about 4 minutes to download with a dialup connection at 45333 bps. And of course the pictures don't download in exactly the order I have them on the page.
