Yeah totally worth it - when I stayed it was around $139 a night, that was in Dec of 2019... I figured it was worth it being that the places in Kayenta were maybe $20 cheaper?! Nothing beats having a hot breakfast watching the sunrise among those monuments!! Only wish I paid up for a photo tour through the park, but I had to get down to Phoenix at the time. Hopefully will go back someday, but every time I look online they want $250 a NIGHT for a room.... there's a KOA up the road a bit, but, it's the new "Trendy" place everyone stays in the area - so good luck getting a spot! Otherwise it's about a 2-3 hour drive from Moab so I may make it down again...

There's a few photo tour guides from the Navajo that might be worth a look - you get 2-4 hours either at sunrise or sunset, and they take you a bit off the beaten path..

Thanks! Appreciate you looking and commenting. Really glad we sprung for a stay here considering we got shut out of the drive on the two days of our visit. Stunning nonetheless.

I have a M50, along with the EOS R. Even after I eventually add a R7 to my equipment list, I just cannot fathom selling the M50. It's a great kit for when I want to travel really light -- the body, along with EF-M 15-45mm, 18-150mm, 11-22mm and 22mm pancake lenses (and accessories) all fit in a very small camera bag. Here's that bag next to my old Canon 5D3 + EF 24-105L for comparison:

Great shot for comparison. The M50 makes for a great travel kit. This is the 2nd one I owned as I regretted selling it the first time! :-) I don't know...on the fence.

Went out last night to the tip of Cape Canaveral (I work on the cape, so had access). Shot the Milky Way over the ocean, at the end of one of the sand dune "walkovers". The glow in the lower right is Melbourne, Florida. I call it "walkway to the Stars" . . .

Did they allow any "test drives" :-D:-D:-D

This would be a fun place to see sometime! thanks for sharing!

Some of the most genuinely nice/wells spoken people I've met at car related events were PCA members... they all told me: "Yeah...once you go Porsche.. you never go back to anything else"

Actually they do! So with it being their North American HQ's, it's also the Experience Center for test drives and driving simulators. You can rent everything up to a GT3 to drive on the track out back. You have to book it on their website.

The place is literally immaculate and so much to see everywhere. The museum changes vehicles that are on display so you never know what you will see there. Underground parking garage had a signed pace car along with a Michelin man tire air compressor. I stopped up with a friend about 20mins before they closed, we got to hang out for about an hour, staff was very nice. I have a ton of pictures however I don't wanna flood the thread. You might recognize the building if you have seen the later Avengers movies.

Wow! and I had no idea they even had a state side center like this!! Will def be on my agenda if I head out that way!

I can only imagine a GT3 for the day - they're untouchable on the track (and the sound! redline!! bonkers!)- I've always cared more about handing/limits than the straight line stuff (Probably because my father had me at the dragraces so many weekends growing up, that you sort of just want something different!! I do love me some Jet Cars though!! :twisted::twisted::twisted:)

I almost bought a used Caymen S, but I opted for a 370z - yeah it's a pig in the corners so you have to be onboard with stupid amounts of front camber and frequent tire replacements... so I just baby the thing, but a front swaybar made a night/day difference - best $150 I have ever spent on anything auto related!!

Thanks for sharing - and here I thought I had to go to Stuttgart!! (Which would be fun!!)

Yea, they have I believe 2 Experience Centers in the USA, the one in Atlanta, and the one Los Angeles. It is well worth a visit!!

GT3 would be soooo nice to drive around the track, my dream would be the Carrera GT, however from what I read that car is a handful to drive on the track and I have no experience behind the wheel of a supercar on that level. I've rode motorcycles on the track, that's it. Glad you like the photos, Stuttgart would be very nice!!!!
