Welcome to the photo blog for David and Janet Elmore. You can find pages full of photos from our trips with Vanessa (our van-based RV) and pages that are a record of events with lots of photos. Many of our travel photos are connected to a map at the bottom of our posts so you can see where we went and can look for photos at specific places.

Below is a list of recent posts.

Waterfall Trail

Wed 8-Mar-2017 Arizona, Travel | 0 comments

Early, before getting too hot, we took a trail recommended to us by another camper. The trail, starting right at the Romero Ruins Trailhead, is not on any of the park maps, but David found it on his Motion-X...

Sabino Canyon

Mon 6-Mar-2017 Arizona, Travel | 0 comments

We spent the night with our friends Katherine and John in Tucson and took a great 4-Mile hike with them in the morning. They are among the lucky Tucsonians who live just a few minutes from world class hiking...

Canyon Ranch Walk

Sun 5-Mar-2017 Arizona, Travel | 0 comments

Our drive to Tucson from near Phoenix was uneventful, but we were pleased to see the flowers by the road — poppies, lupine, and Bougainville. After arriving at Katherine and John’s we caught up...

Hoover Dam

Sat 4-Mar-2017 Arizona, Nevada | 0 comments

Even though we had a long drive to Tucson, we did a bit of sighteing at Hoover Dam before leaving Lake Mead.  The Dam is quite an engineering miracle that I remember reading about in my “Weekly...

Lake Mead

We had two fairly strenuous hikes today. In the morning we drove back to Zabriskie Point to see the colorful hills in a different light. Then we walked the 2.5 mile Badlands loop. The loop gives you a first...

Death Valley: Day 2

Tue 28-Feb-2017 California, Travel | 0 comments

We started the day with a return to Desolation Canyon for a hike up Desolation Canyon which is to the right of the canyon we hiked yesterday (Desolation Canyon East).  Again, this was a lovely quiet canyon...

Death Valley Tourists

Mon 27-Feb-2017 California, Travel | 0 comments

We chose today to make some of the “typical” Death Valley stops, Badwater and Natural Arch Canyon, but less typical was a walk into Desolation Canyon East. Badwater is still 282 feet below sea...

Driving through the desert

Today we drove from Joshua Tree NP to Death Valley NP, with a stop at the grocery store (Von’s) in Joshua Tree. Groceries here, even the produce, are good, but very expensive. After a five hour drive,...
