    Hubbell Trading Post NHS Artist-in-Residence.

    Less than two weeks until I roll out to Arizona. I'm on the site April 14-28. Never done an AIR before.

    Much to arrange before I am gone and much to arrange for while I am there but the lists are getting shorter. My wife and I have had a terrible Spring of medical and business issues. Made the prep a little crazy. Every time we think things are settling down some other catastrophe arrives. Been crazy. Thank goodness Katie is made of tough stuff. And beautiful.

    Taking 5X7, macbook, Nikon 300 and 8X10. The 5X7 is the camera I expect to use the most. 200 sheets of film for it.

    4-Runner going into the shop for a check-up before I hit the road.

    Hoping to see a couple curators on the way out. My session starts on a Monday and ends on a Monday. Going to leave Friday early and try to see one curator that afternoon out West.

    Worked through a stack of books, though I know the area pretty well. Still have to print a few maps of Canyon de Chelly complex and tape them together. Will have a Garmin on board for travel.

    Days in Canyon de Chelly run about 400.00 at 35.00 an hour with guide.

    Good Luck Robert, though I think you rely more on preparation than luck...

    Sorry to hear about the troubles, hope it all goes well-

    Bought two beautiful Navajo rugs there about a decade ago - a highlight of our trip. The trading post is so wonderful and authentic. Wish I could spend that kind of time in the Four Corners. Have fun and please share your pictures.

    Inside the Hubbell residence the kitchen is just off a patio. The light that bounces around in there is incredible. Going to take the 8X10 in but probably will require the 5X7 and 120mm Super Angulon. My friend Jackson, wife Katie and I walked in there a couple years ago and all of us skidded to a halt at the light.

    Hoping to see some miracles. Got an appointment to look at some Chaco Pottery in Albuquerque on the way out.

    Just talked to the AIR co-ordinator at Hubbell. Nancy Mattina, a writer from Prescott, AZ, is the AIR in front of me. She's there.

    Snow at Ganado last night. They need every drop of moisture. We are in the 50s overnight here in Tyler. Truck prep today and I built a map of Google Map terrain print-outs. Field-expediant to the extreme with foam-core, doublestick, wide package tape. Canyon de Chelly on one side and Del Muerto on the other. The map isn't the territory, but it can tell you what to expect next. It will be marked up with mileage, ruin sites, lunch stops, et by the time I get back. Half a sheet of foamcore big.

    You don't need a guide to shoot the Canyon from the road around the top, or if you hike in. But you probably already knew that. Wonderful country, and glad you have the opportunity to spend some time.
