Abby and I have just returned from our tenth anniversary vacation. We spent several days in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and several days in Moab, Utah, where we got married ten years ago. I accomplished most of my photographic goals, including photographing Delicate Arch in Arches National Park at sunrise.

The road is still on us: luggage scattered throughout the house, a patina of crushed insects and off-road dirt on Abby’s truck, the taste of road coffee and salted peanuts in us.

So begins the next ten years of our marriage. For as difficult as marriage can be, nothing compares, and I wouldn’t have traded it for anything.

Watch this blog or The Traveller for a full trip report coming soon.

This was my first time to photograph Delicate Arch, where Abby and I got married, at sunrise.

  1. Looking forward to the full report. And congratulations on 10 years of marriage.

    Also: glad you found a place where jacket-wearing still exists. I haven’t left Central Texas in some while, but I can only assume most of the world is this warm. :-)
