I can't believe 6 months have passed since our last update. Kurt and I have kept busy for the most part with a little idling in between.
During the summer, Kurt and I hosted various family members and friends at Gooseberry Falls where we campground host. We made our Barebones wall tent into a cozy cabin complete with inflatable queen size bed, reclining chair and mini fridge. Some of the activities our guests enjoyed included hikes in the woods, agate hunting on the beach, chatting around the campfire and touring the shops and the eateries along the north shore.
Early fall, we published our third postcard set titled: the American Southwest. Kurt designed the postcard set to look like a miniature magazine with each title describing the postcards inside the set. Our collection of postcards photographed in a handful of National Parks happens to coincide with the National Park Service 100th anniversary!
We spent a couple weeks in the Twin Cities and then headed to the Southwest for the winter. On our way to Death Valley we made stops in Arches, Bryce and Zion National Parks. While in Utah, we also made a quick stop to see dinosaur tracks just outside of Arches. Before we knew it we were back in Las Vegas and it felt as if we had never left.
Kurt and I are currently volunteering in Death Valley National Park, photographing for the park. Here are a few photos of our travels and our work in the park:
