I shared the back seat with Heather and Slade's awesome dogs as we drove up to Estes Park for some Rocky Mountain scenery. Despite a 100% chance of rain (and as we all know, the weather is always better in the mountains, right?), we ended up with spots of sunlight that were incredible. It's one of my favorite things about the southwest--the amazing quality of the light even on the most stormy of days. Heather and Slade were the best of hosts, so easy to spend a day with, and amazingly easy to photograph. Thank you two, and congratulations!
