Chet and anyone else interested:

    Come on down to the Texas Hill Country the middle of April for some great photography.  From there, you can head for Moab.

    I have attached a couple of photos to get your interest.  ;)

Ron,

Won't make it to Hill country but am hoping to make Death Valley. They say the flowers are the best in 100 years. Hope they aren't gone by!!

Love to be there, Ron. Maybe some time. All my photos these days have a WHITE--------------and cold background. Here's one of Old Man Winter, smiling on his work.

Hope you're right Jim.  Enjoy it for me since I didn't get to go this year.

Ron M,
Maybe you should head out here to the deserts since this has been the wetest season in many many years. Might be a long time before one will see the desert in bloom like this.  You could just come straight across then go on to DV and enter from the south end. That road is open.

Chet,

Thanks for posting that site URL.  Those are the most fantastic wildflowers than I have seen anywhere.  Makes me want to head over there.

OK Chet now youve done it.  I showed Sam the pictures on the web site of Death Valley (she was out earlier) and now we are considering heading that direction.  Not for certain yet but we are thinking about it.

Would love to Ron, but alas:  I have a rally to co-host in Kerrville coming up and I am going into the hospital next Monday for a heart stent.  :(  Hope all of you enjoy the scenery.

Ron,

Good luck with the stent.  Let us know how it comes out.  I expect they won't keep you very long, the beds are needed for the sick people :)

Hope all goes well with the stent.  We can't go right away either as we have friends coming down from Nova Scotia.  They will be here two weeks.  The flowers will probably be almost finished after that.  We were thinking about it though.  Chet called said he was thinking about going out to DV too.

Good luck with the stent, Ron.  I may be headed that way myself, but for the moment I'm on the waiting list for an angiogram.

Ciao,

Doug

Very true.  I'll make it a point to get out quick. :)

Chet, When are you flying west to check out the wildflowers in Death Valley.  The flowers in DV have it the national news tonight and will be revisited tomorrow night on NBC.
