To quote the lyrics from a Chicago song "Everyone needs a little time away".
This year we went to Nevada, Utah and Arizona. I highly recommend visiting our National Parks, there is so much to see. I try to travel light. Being a photographer - I do want some time off from behind the lens. BUT, that is impossible. I have tried a compact camera, it takes good snapshots and that is about it. This year I kept it to the confines of a backpack. It held my D500 with 16-80 lens, 14mm lens small travel tripod with remote release and of course my old GoPro. No laptop for fear that I would do some work and left my phone in the room during our trips, most of our locations didn't get a signal anyway.
Plenty of keepers and it is a chore going through to figure out what I am going to put on the wall - I've got a year to decide before the whole process starts over.
