Murals, Windmills and Real Indians:

This past Thursday we were in Tucumcari, NM with our Route 66 Photography Workshop. Nancy and thirteen students met me in Adrain, TX on Wednesday. We travel together spending four very fun filled days exploring Tucumcari and Route 66 into Santa Fe. Incredible group of photographers! Made beautiful photographs. A big thanks for all the good energy everyone shared together.

Tucumcari is alive and well. The entire town celebrates the history of Route 66.

Life size murals are being painted on buildings through town. It is a very good idea to keep an eye out for the Route 66 traffic when crossing the historic highway.

Mesa Community College is developing an exciting wind energy program. Standing under one of the windmills in the evening can be an experience to remember.

Just outside of Santa Fe traveling the Mother Road provides opportunities to experience times and places past.

Rest day at home in Santa Fe. Changed the oil, washed the bike, did some laundry. On the Mother Road west early in the morning. Skies are filled with smoke tonight. Fires in AZ. Tornados, hail, rain, wind and now smoke filled skies...never expected to see what I have. Excited to get the kickstand up.

be strong, be safe, Carlan
