My first air traveling trip since last spring was earlier this month. It was hard, and weird to not get on a plane for a whole year. With covid circulating and my precautions for my two young children taking the front seat, it kept me and many others to roadtrippin'. With me being fully vaccinated and better aware of the situation it was time to get back on the airwaves.

Two workshops that I was conducting in Utah last year were postponed due to closures in the national parks system, and the fact that we were all in lockdown. We rescheduled the workshops for 2021 with high hopes and I arrived a day early to do some exploring on my own. Goblin Valley was always place I wanted to visit and I finally had the opportunity to spend a night here while checking off another campground visit on my list. I didn't have a ton of time here, but that did not matter before every which way you looked there was something extraordinary to gaze at. I will definitely be conducting a workshop here in the near future!

Here is one of the images I created on my stay . I hope you enjoy! More of my work and night sky photography workshops can been seen here on my website at
