In July 2010, my sister ("Sherlock") wanted to drive to California for a Dark Shadows convention. I went along so I could see Dinetah, homeland of the Navajo. This is our photo documentary of the journey from San Antonio, TX to Burbank, CA and back. It was an unusually cold and wet summer; there were storms throughout most of the area we covered on the way to CA, so everything was abnormally green.
My sister wanted to go to the con so she could see the (now late) Jonathan Frid, whom she had done a lot of illustration work for.
This photoblog, however, consists of photos taken during the trip itself for historic and artistic reference purposes and focus on flora, fauna, geology, architecture, historical reeactors, and museum displays (anthropology, medicine). I am not uploading any pics from the convention; those will be on my sister's blog if she ever gets to it. I have categorized the images as well as I could (see categories to the right), so you can go through the photos by date (post dates are backdated to the date the photos were taken) or by category/tag.
You are welcome to use these photos for educational purposes if you find them useful.
Note: the photos are backdated to what I think is the date they were taken. The time stamp (HH:MM), however, is only for keeping them in the same order they were taken (two cameras were used). The time stamp is not when the photos were originally taken. That info was apparently lost when the images were downloaded onto my sister's netbook. It would get confusing in some areas anyway since we crossed several time zones.
