The muses are easy to photograph because they are so dang cute… but their parents are another matter. We were pretty sure we’d need a dramatic backdrop to get a picture worthy of the music, so off we went. David took us to a pond, a river, and finally on an old railroad causeway across the Great Salt Lake. Along the way we scrambled into the branches of a tree and later perched precariously on boulders in the midst of a river where we prayed for our balance to hold long enough for David to wade fully clothed out into the depths of the river for a shot. We tramped barefoot through muddy shores and swarms of brine flies along the Great Salt Lake, stood on a live railroad track for a tune or two, and drove a very muddy and seldom used track along the rail line out to a pool of lavender water lined with salt stained rocks. Taking Woody Guthrie’s advice we looked only at the back sides of the “No Trespassing” signs and just as he said they “didn’t say nothing.” Our new Ottermobile proved worthy for the task although he was scarcely recognizable at the end. After a thorough cleaning later that day (courtesy of our nephews) he was none the worse for wear.
We’ve got some incredible pictures, some even more incredible memories , and a pocketful of new music we can’t wait to share! We're in the final stages of recording and will be holding a special fundraising concert later this month. There's still a few seats left if you'd care to join us! You can order tickets here, or call us with any questions!
Here's a brief smattering of photos from our adventure!
