Ok this is the last Sand Hill Crane photo I promise.
Ok this is the last Sand Hill Crane photo I promise.
I strapped a GoPro to my head one morning to try and catch the mass exodus of Greater Sand Hill Cranes and after standing in the sub zero temps for an hour it happened catching most of us off guard.

Looking down on Albuquerque from Sandia Peak, elevation 10,679 feet above sea level. On the way up to this dead end peak road I encountered the first snow of the year.

The Sandia Mountains are a mountain range located in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties, immediately to the east of the city of Albuquerque in New Mexico in the southwestern United States. The range is largely within the Cibola National Forest, and part of the range is protected as the Sandia Mountain Wilderness.

Another Happy Accident whilst looking for a short cut to Sante Fe. It was a very brisk 33F at this elevation and with the wind chill of the 20 mph both hands went numb waiting for the sun to drop below the horizon, but it was so worth it.

Yesterday as I stood for hours doing a time lapse of the activity of this lake covered with Snow Geese I met a man named William. William is a retired wildlife biologist from Maine there to watch and photograph the varity of wildlife at Bosque del Apache.

After some time he told me he had saved a young Havalina's life that had been hit by a car and was lying in the road. He was moved to tears recalling how he thought it was dead and just didn't want it to be run  over, but as he pulled it off the road it began to move, and then slowly stood up and eventually trotted off into the desert. He had to stop near the end and contain himself and wipe the tears forming in his eyes to finish his story. He looked up at me and I too had been moved to tears by the sheer kindness of this beautiful human. He reached out touched my arm and finished the story and which point he said loudly, "Lewis, I want to see your photos, how do I see them?" I told him about our vangonow YouTube and Instagram accounts and my website gonzoshots.com. He then grabbed a piece of paper and wrote it all down and write his email on a piece of paper and gave it to me. I went back to the van and shot him a quick email so as not to lose contact with this gentle soul. A few seconds later I hear him shout out ,"Lewis" and then a thumbs up letting me know he received my email.

We are approaching the end of our epic 13,500 mile Fall road trip its no wonder my shoulders and arms ache from time to time. However, on this day I am feeling incredibly grateful for my travel partner Renee and all her Love, support, meals, navation and logitcs, I could never do this alone. I am also grateful for having the time and heath to sieze this adventure. It's sad but true to admit that i loose site of these many blessings, but not today. Today i will take one more long look at the beautiful and bounty of nature around me and add to thw very long list of beautiful places and people we have met along the way.

I'll have dozens of time lapses and drone videos to put together for our YouTube channel not to mention thousands of images to process when I get home next week so please be patient.  We started this journey with only a few dozen followers and now we have over 700, thanks for joining us on our adventure, hopefully there are many more to come, in the mean time Colorado here I come.

Already starting to plan our next Winter roadtrip to the Southwest.

Hotel night! Shower and everything. Tons of photo and video editing to do so it's time to get to work and stop taking photos for a few hours.  I apologize if I sound drowsy, I"m wiped out. Started my days taking photos of birds at 4a.m. two days in a row!
