In the fall of 2018, after a very busy summer, I took a road trip across the country with my girlfriend Michelle and husky Yuba. The final destination of the cross country adventure was my parents’ house in upstate New York for Thanksgiving. We traveled from California to Vermont and back in an electric vehicle, documenting the incredible places we stopped at along the way.
While on the road I put my best landscape photography work over the years into a folder and launched http://store.davidnbraun.com from hotel rooms scattered across the country. It is a complete online wall art gallery that offers clients a variety of tools that make the viewing and buying process as effective and efficient as possible.
We began our journey from Lake Tahoe driving south towards Las Vegas, camping in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. From there, we continued west on Route 66 through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
While in Arizona we were able to hike in the Sedona area and camp along Oak Creek. Making time is always important on a trip of this scale, but we also wanted to be sure we were able to enjoy being in certain parts of the country and I of course wanted to shoot the best landscape images I possible. I managed to shoot a dramatic sunset from a trail above Sedona and captured the first light hitting Oak Creek in the Coconino National Forest. We were happy to spend time in this incredible desert and take in what was left of the fall colors.
From our time exploring the Sedona area I was able to add four images to the Arizona Gallery: https://store.davidnbraun.com/arizona-landscape-photography
Continuing along Route 66 we managed to check out some interesting roadside attractions, such as “Meteor Crater” (https://gallery.davidnbraun.com/Clients/Meteor-Crater/n-WwcLt2). We then cruised through the vast New Mexico desert and didn’t stop very much, except for a brief hotel stay outside of Santa Fe.
Regardless of where you are in the country or what highway you are on, the sprawl and box stores generally all look the same. The abandoned and half living ghost towns, however, still have plenty of character. Getting off the new highway and driving along the old one, there were no shortage of historic, half living towns to explore. It must have been a really slow yet exciting adventure when only the two lane highway existed.
Our next camping and photography destination was Palo Duro Canyon in Texas. This impressive and little know canyon is actually the second largest canyon system in the country. It is 120 miles long and twenty miles wide in certain places. We shot the sunset and sunrise, rode our bikes with Yuba, watched some migratory birds fly overhead, then headed back on the road. Again, we were impressed by this desert landscape that we were able to spend time in. From this experience, I was able to create a new Texas gallery and add three images to it. https://store.davidnbraun.com/texas-landscape-photography
Every night we camped was well below freezing, but ironically our night in Texas was the coldest of the trip. Until we go to the midwest, we had experienced only unseasonably cold weather, but barely saw any clouds. From Missouri to New York the weather of course changed and we drove as many as 600 miles per day through rain, snow, and ice. Photography opportunities were limited at this point and we just focused our efforts on getting to our final destination, knowing that we would soon be turning around to do it all over again …
