This is a great spot just north of Sedona down along Oak Creek Canyon. There is a whole family of these giant Sycamores with their falling autumn leaves and the enchanment they create when the sunshine bounces around and through their golden and green colors.

I noticed while on this trip that I was starting to get those urges to get back "home". I realized that I had become attached to my "things" and my "routines". It seems that I lose some of my "freedom" when I get too attached to this "stuff". I have to maintain a balance of my travel, painting, and spiritual things with my material life. It's a hard feeling to describe. Everyone has different "priorities" in their life, and those change with time. My top priority in life is to stay as "free" as I can from all the worldly stuff and all the negative goings on in the world. My job is to turn lead into gold, if you know what I mean?

There was a family from Russia sitting together having lunch there under the Pinon Pines. I saw many people from other countries at the Canyon as usual. More and more of them are flying in and renting those "Cruise America" and other brands of Recreational Vehicles to travel around in. I spoke to some of the people and they like them much more than staying in hotels and they are less expensive. To stay at the Grand Canyon camp grounds it is only $18 a day. That is with no hook ups.

Best Brella). It was easy to attach to my tripod and re-acted well to a little breeze that came up while I was painting. It wasn't really hot, but the umbrella gave me just a little extra protection from the sun.
