This is a nice old abandoned house and car in Tucumcari, New Mexico. This state wins for having the greatest rural decay in the American Southwest!
I’ve decided to dream big and create a Kickstarter to do the ultimate big adventure. To travel the Desert Southwest from Southern California all the way to Louisiana over a two month period (60-days) in a Suzuki Samurai. I will camp and live out of my Samurai and shower at truck stops. I’m going to travel to Southern Nevada onto Southern California, then through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana and my Journey will take 60-90 days to complete. The theme of my journey will be: “The Truth is Out There!” I will venture to major UFO Hotspots and will be promoting the 2015 Utah UFO Festival taking place in Southern Utah (August of 2015). What’s unique about this journey is that I will be basing my travels on Southwestern Folklore in search of the truth and will utilize this information as an artist to draw my own conclusions into the reality of it through my own method of photographic interpretation. The trip will be somewhat risky and dangerous as I will be venturing along the Mexican Border in several areas and will be stationed at various UFO hotspots that are historically significant and some archeological sites. Who knows what I’m going to see and witness, first hand!? I’m ready to redefine my own vision of the Desert Southwest from the seat of a Suzuki Samurai and I will report weekly and daily on my adventures via social media.
This is East of Kayenta, Arizona on the way through Four Corners going to New Mexico. Off in the distance is the rocky pointed landmark titled, El Capitan, and then Monument Valley.
On my way to Lukachukai, Arizona!
This was taken at the largest dwelling, Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon National Monument located two hours south of Farmington, New Mexico. In it’s prime it was considered to be the cultural center of the Anasazi Empire which stretched from Southern Utah, all the way down into the heart of New Mexico. The ancestors of the ancient Anasazi are believed to be the modern Pueblo tribes located through-out the Southwest with the largest group being the Hopi in Northern Arizona.
