War of the Worlds

Man, oh man!  The last few days have been jam packed with activity.  First day of the road trip had included San Francisco and Berkeley; next day was Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake; third day was all  Death Valley, all day, and it was glorious!  Today, the fourth day, had us heading out of Pahrump, Nevada to Las Vegas, then to Hoover Dam and then into Arizona.  As I write this, I am back on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona, home of the famous Angel Delgadillo, whom I met on my epic three week Route 66 explore back in late 2011.  This time, I’ll get to introduce him to my wife and kids, which I had promised him I would do back then.  He’s about one of the nicest old gentleman you could ever meet on Route 66.  Anyway, here is the shot for today, not of anything on Route 66, but rather a piece I created using a photo I shot the other day on Death Valley.  At the time I shot it, I was specifically looking for terrain that would lend itself to an other worldly creation, which is a fairly easy thing to do in Death Valley.  My kids asked several times whether this movie or that were filmed there, and we would not have been surprised if some cool sci-fi films were actually shot there (or at least somewhere that looks quite similar).  That said, doubt they shot much in Death Valley because the weather  is… well… dang HOT!!!
