I just realised that I should post a note for any of the Cafe who are in west Texas or plan to be there in the near future. I'll be in Odessa for about two weeks doing some work, and I plan to go down to Big Bend National Park on Easter weekend to shoot. If anyone else will be in the area, drop me a note, and we can try and meet to shoot. I'll likely be staying in Study Butte (pronounced "Stew-dee Beaut" for those people who haven't been to the area) on the west side of the park, unless a room opens up in the Chisos Basin. Big Bend National Park is one of the least frequented of the National Parks, but has an incredible landscape, wildlife, and at this time of year, a good possibility for massive wildflowers. If you haven't been there, it's a well-worthwhile trip. But don't go after April until maybe early October, or you'll cook. It's hot and humid both in that interval. So while this is a late note, it's perhaps not too late. Anyone interested ? John P.
