|On the Road Somewhere in Utah|
Let's back up to last January. Suwei had almost 3 months of maternity leave left to burn through. What better way can you think of than to hit the road and head to Colorado for a month or so of skiing? Anyway, that's what we came up with. Our plan was to minimize each days driving time as much as possible, visit as many friends along the way as possible, and to keep the baby from freezing to death. Were we a little nervous? Hell yes!
As it turns out the trip went off without too many hitches.

Description: The site commemorates the completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad where the Central Pacific Railroad and the Union Pacific Railroad met on May 10, 1869. The final joining of the rails spanning the continent was signified by the driving of the ceremonial Golden Spike.
Anyway, Jackie was in the area for work and we had hoped that we could meet up at Edi's place. As it turns out, it snowed quite a bit that night and Jackie couldn't make it down the hill until the next morning. So, we met up with her for lunch in Ogden, UT.

It was so nice out there, I decided to get up early and head out to Landscape Arch for sunrise the next day (sans baby). Turns out there wasn't much of a sunrise as it was quite cloudy out there. However, I did manage to get a few shots that I'm proud of.
