We’re currently in Sin City. Eating too much, drinking a bit, and gambling a bit. Kind of a major cultural shift from what we’ve been doing up until now. Also, it’s a bit on the nippy side here. People are wandering around in winter coats at night. Last week, it was in the 90′s. So much for the sunny, warm, southwest.
And the higher elevations are seeing their first snows of the year. Last week we visited Cedar Breaks, which tops out at nearly 11,000 feet. It was in the high 60′s then. According to the Weather Channel, they’re getting a couple of inches of snow today. It’s warmer back in Rochester-land, I think.
We were at Bryce when we drove up to Cedar Breaks. It was there – in Bryce – that I saw these 2 guys standing up on a ledge taking pictures at sunset. One of them had a regular DSLR, but the other was holding what appears to be an Ipad (well, an Ipad 2). He was taking pictures with it. I’ve never seen anyone doing that before. Ipads are amazing little pieces of technology, but the picture taking function isn’t one of those things that I’d expect to see being used in a national park.
I’d love to have seen the results…………
