Greetings and bounces!
Denise said that I really should introduce myself before I start talking about our trip. My name is Rover. I'm a little red dog, and I travel with Denise. I jumped into her panniers just after she started her journey across America on two wheels, and I've been traveling with her ever since. I contributed a couple of journal pages on our trip to Death Valley late in 2007, and you know what? I decided that creating pictures with words can be fun.
I've been whispering to Denise every day, telling her that I want to write a whole trip journal, not just a couple of pages. This trip is only three days, so I figure that this is a good journal for experimenting. Don't you think it's a good idea? This way Denise can concentrate on taking pictures, and I'll work on stringing all of the words together. Oh, this is going to be so much fun!
I was playing with our baby computer - an ASUS Eee - and I thought I'd see if I could grab a photo of me sitting next to Denise's big camera. And look, you can see a reflection of the screen with a picture of me and the camera in the camera lens.
This is really a better picture of me. Denise took this one as we were tramping up Mosaic Canyon in Death Valley National Park.
