The wish for a clear day
Please View Large On Black Jiancing Historic Trail, like many other trails in Taipingshan National Forest, was built along the old logging railway. The elevation of 2000m is the height at which clouds form and linger. Jiancing (見晴) actually means the wish for a clear day. For a photographer, however, there's nothing better than hiking all day in the impenetrable white mist. Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40mm f/4.0L USM, 17mm 1.6s at f/18, ISO 200 ND2. Tripod.

One of the many cool signs inside the Hackberry General Store
I took this photo inside the Hackberry General Store on Historic Route 66 east of Kingman, Arizona in July 2011. The store is a destination in itself - bunch of nostalgic items like very cool signs. The Men's Room is wall-to-wall with classic pin-up and swimsuit posters - what a very cool place to visit!

A Highway Runs Through It
A Highway Runs Through It - To think people looked at this rugged landscape and deep canyon and knew how to build a highway through it! Steep mountain grades and many tight curves make it work yet a driver still must be very careful driving Highway 60 through the Salt River Canyon in east central Arizona. This location is about 30 miles north of Globe and about 60 miles south of Show Low. Handheld capture on a very overcast day, March, 2014.
US 89 Landslide (February 20, 2013)
In the early morning hours of Feb. 20, 2013, a landslide ripped through a section of US 89 along a mountain slope about 25 miles south of Page, buckling more than 150 feet of the roadway and tearing the pavement up in six-foot-high sections. The significant roadway damage forced the Arizona Department of Transportation to immediately close a 23-mile-long stretch of the highway (at mileposts 523-546) between the US 89A junction near Bitter Springs to the State Route 98 junction near Page.
