American SW. Canyon De Chilly

This place is remote and few US tourist venture this far into the Eastern part of Arizona. Most tourist go to the Grand Canyon, a shame, because this park is beautiful.

American South West… Eastern Arizona and Utah

Heading East on Route 66, first stop is Winslow Arizona. People come from all over the world to see the little corner Jackson Brown made famous in his 1972 song “Take it easy”.

There are still bits and pieces of route 66 to be found but most of the old road has been replaced by Interstate-40, which you can see just beyond the old abandoned Studebaker.

Miles of power poles stitch the edge of the once famous roadway now barely noticeable in the desert brush.

Everglades Florida

We are at an end-of-the-road place in Florida called Chokoloskee, very remote. Off highway 41 is the Everglades National park. That white line is a dirt road we found out in the middle of the swamp with some amazing wildlife…

Back on the little island of Chocoloskee we come across these photographers taking photos of a lamp poll. I didn’t have my telephoto so this was the best I could get of the baby horn owl and it’s mother.
