Well the long wait is over, just got a call from a very excited, R.C.  I love how R.C. is always excited, this is a specials trip with some special friends.  Some time ago, I asked R.C. if he would do a workshop with Jim and I and he said, you bet!!!  I asked where he wanted to go, and he said he had never been to Monument Valley and the Golden Circle, I just smiled!  I’ve done that trip maybe 15 times and I know the area really well, I was delighted to tell him, “you bet”!  R.C. is one of those guys that you can’t help from loving!  He is a warm outgoing man who is always thinking of how he can make things better for those around him, the kind of guy that it’s so much fun just to be with!  As if that’s not enough Matt Kloskowski another great friend couldn’t stay away, and he will join us too.  Matt and I have done several trips together and he is a wonderful teacher, and people really enjoy him, he loves to tease, and cut up, and everyone really enjoys what I call the, “Kloskowski Stage Act!


Then you have my incomparable partner Jim Begley, such a great shooter and such a wonderful man, a real joy to work with, and my goodness what work!  Jim is a fabulous photographer and has never met a stranger!  Then you have Snake Barrett and Chuck Barnes and my team is complete. Great guys, terrific shooters, and they love to take good care of the groups, I really love working with them!  This trip my son Wesley will return to a place he loves dearly, and we had many great adventures doing America From 500 Feet!  We will present a rare program for the group, Wes and I together reliving the wonderful project and sharing stories and rarely seen video from  the air of us flying for the book images!


This group is a great mix of old friends and new people we can’t wait to welcome into the His Light family.  One thing is for sure, we always have the best time, laugh hard, and we all, even the team, learn a lot!


I’ll keep you posted as we travel through out Utah and photograph some of God’s most amazing vreations!

If we are fortunate we will see a dusting of snow like the scene at the top in Bryce Canyon National Park!

Tomorrow I will drive to Louisville with Wes, and Jim, and will fly out to Phoenix on Saturday morning to join up with our team and group to start the tour!  I will try to post each day, probably late in the evening, and keep you guys posted on  the progress of the trip.  I would ask once again that you pray for everyone’s safety, great light, wonderful fellowship, and that our hearts would be open to Him!  I expect to share a lot of great stories of victory through the week, as always, thanks so much for joining me!


May God Bless, and keep you,


the pilgrim
