Day 1 - On the Road

Today (Friday, May 29), Chops Hancock and I left Winona, Minnesota, heading for Arizona with a van full of video cameras, lights, batteries, still cameras, audio recorders, and camping gear. 12 hours later, and after only a few wrong turns we stopped for the night in Salina, Kansas.

Three GPS units on the dashboard and we still got lost a little.

We saw these pig snouts poking out for air from a semi-trailer truck. It made us laugh.

We visited famous National Geographic photographer Jim Brandenburg's gallery in Luverne, Minnesota, then stopped at the "Touch The Sky Prairie" which is supported by Jim and Judy Brandenburg and is one of the only places in Minnesota where the tall grass prairie has never been plowed for agriculture.
