VLA on the way to El Paso

We are sitting at the Lowbrow Palace in El Paso waiting for the band to do a sound check. It was quite a long drive from Flagstaff but I'm glad we took a few extra hours because the scenery was so incredibly beautiful. So many amazing landscapes, small out of the way towns, and rolling, rocky hills and mountains.  I'll never get over the sight of a great expanse blotted with sunlight, wild horses, long abandoned homesteads, and an entire storm pouring down onto a distant local.

We stopped quite a few places to take pictures but my favorite was next to The Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico which is a radio astronomy observatory.  More pictures to come once I get back to Austin
