Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 2.

The Elderhostel/Road Scholar “Photography in the Southwest” workshop was based at Kelly Place  a B&B just outside of Cortez Colorado. This is a great location in McElmo Canyon, quiet and remote. It borders Canyon of the Ancients National Monument. The following images were taken in and around Kelly Place during the second day of the workshop.
