Moab 2010

Wendy and I ended up without the kids for Spring Break, so we decided to run out to Moab and kick around a bit. A 40 car pileup closed Vail Pass in both directions, so we detoured through Leadville, but we made it out there and hiked into Canyonlands National Park and checked out Newspaper Rock and Corona Arch saw the "Needles" for the first time.

She used to live in Aspen back before everything went crazy and her iPod is full of tunes from the 70's that I've not heard in forever and a day. I never listen to the radio and most of those old songs I'd pretty much forgotten about and it was fun rolling along and reminiscing. We had a lot of fun.

Here's a brief slideshow of some of the thousands of photos I shot on the trip to Moab. Note that many of these images are from other towns along the way, including, but not limited to Palisades, Rifle, Grand Junction, Aspen, Glenwood Springs, and Vail.

The images were all captured on one of the following:

The images are compiled into a 19 Meg (3:45) Adobe Flash slideshow(2010_moab.swf) that you should be able to open and view with any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.). To view the slideshow, just click on the photo above. If you want to view the slideshow as a Windows executable, you can play this version (2010_moab.exe), and it allows you to play, pause, skip forward, backwards, etc.

Image post-processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended. The slideshow was created using Imagematics Stillmotion Pro.

The soundtrack is "Spooky" by The Atlanta Rhythym Section. Lyrics in the extended entry.

Spooky

In the cool of the evening
When everything is gettin kind of groovy
I call you up and ask you if you
Would you like to go with me and see a movie
First you say no, you've got some plans for the night
And then you stop, and say, all right
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you
You always keep me guessin
I never seem to know what you are thinkin
And if a fella looks at you
It's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin
I get confused, cause I don't know where I stand
And then you smile, and hold my hand
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you
Spooky
If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin
I'm gonna tell you all what my heart's been a-dyin to be sayin
Just like a ghost, you've been a-hauntin my dreams
So I'll propose on Halloween
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you
Spooky, spooky, oh whoa, all right
Spooky, oh yea yea
I said Spooky yea yea
