3:30 am came far too early. We had an early flight out of San Jose, and given the confusion at the airport when we arrived, we wanted to make sure we were there in time. As it turns out, checking out of the hotel, returning the rental car, and finding our flight was much easier and smoother than we expected.
The first leg of our flight took us across Utah and the Canyonlands area. We watched some spectacular topography pass by, and I thought of other trips I would love to take sometime soon. After the neat stuff passed by, I dozed off. Soon we were on the ground in Dallas.
Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the nicer airports I’ve been through. The circular terminals seem to have more space than the long, linear ones at most airports. There also seem to be plenty of food options and distractions for the waiting traveler. Just too bad that they don’t provide free wifi.
The last leg of the flight to Greenville was uneventful. We arrived to nearly 100 degree temps and high humidity – seems like summer arrived while we were out west. The cats hadn’t completely destroyed the house, and all four of them rushed to us when we arrived.
I’ve still got tons of images I need to process. I only uploaded the ones that were close to being ready to go. The others need some post processing. Most of this is just adjusting light balances or straightening a picture where the camera wasn’t held evenly. I’m sure I’ll be sorting through those for days to come.
I’m glad we allowed one day of down time before jumping back into work. Laura’s horoscope for today said that she was to relax, even if “you have to duct tape yourself to the sofa.” Sounds like good advise to me.
