Hike Camp and Paint...Utah.

My friend Dawn and I are trying to raise a little extra money to help subsidize a canyon hiking, camping, photography, plein air painting and birthday celebrating venture to the red rocks and canyons of southern utah. 

We chose September of this year to include Dawn's birthday as part of our adventure, to both mark off a few things on the old bucket list. 

First, we'll fly into Las Vegas NV and spend a couple days there to celebrate Dawn's birthday. Our hope to is take in a Cirque du Soliel performance if we can raise enough $$. That would be an awesome birthday present!!

We plan to camp a few nights to save money. I am especially looking forward to camping at Cedar Breaks, which is one of the darkest places in the country. We'll be there during the new moon in early September. I've read one can get fabulous Milky Way photos there. 

After Vegas we'll drive north to Zion National Park, where I plan to do some sketching and plein air painting of the beautiful canyon and Virgin River. Next is south to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, where I again plan to spend time sketching and painting canyon views. Then back north to Bryce to camp in the hoodoos, then west to Cedar Breaks National monument along the scenic highways of southern Utah. We'll finish up camping at Kolob, then drive back to Vegas to catch a flight to Nashville, TN. 

I hope you will consider joining with us on this. It is a once in a lifetime for us and we've been planning and looking forward to it for a year now. 

I've listed a few rewards I can offer for your generous gifts. I've also included an option to donate $ for Dawn's Birthday dinner and Cirque du Soliel show in Las Vegas. I think everyone who visits Vegas needs to see at least one of them. I hope we can make this happen. 

thank you thank you!!!
