72 Hours in Arizona: Video Diary

I basically slapped together this video the day I returned from Arizona. We landed half past noon, so when I got home, I basically had five hours before I had to start dinner so I occupied myself by editing photos and making this video diary.
I always love making these because I can relive the trip. As much as I love photography, I love the flexibility of videography and the interactive nature. I also think it's a more fun way to share my trip with others; I mean, there's definitely a limit to the number of photos I can force someone to look at but a video under ten minutes requires almost no coaxing.

72 Hours in Arizona: Day 3

Our third morning started bright and early too. We wanted to get up in time to watch the sunrise over the red rock formations. So, we got up at 6AM and didn't really bother doing much else besides brushing our teeth and throwing on our warmest clothes (since we figured we could put a little more effort in once we got back). We borrowed some blankets from the hotel so we could cozy up outside and then we piled into the car. Luckily for us, getting to beautiful scenery only required a brief jaunt in the car.
We decided to head back to the Doe Mountain trailhead because we'd enjoyed it so much whilst stargazing and this way, we could see what it looked like in the daylight.

72 Hours in Arizona: Day 2

Day 2 of our trip began before the crack of dawn. We were up and on the road by 6:15. We popped by McDonalds to load up on some caffeine and a road trip-style breakfast (hash browns eaten at sunrise are amazing). We made a beeline for Page, which was a hundred and sixty mile drive.
It was actually pretty easy to wake up early because of the time difference, which was lucky because we had a v. full day ahead.
