I am so sorry to tell you this but there will be another delay (hopefully only one more day) in posting. Yesterday, while at my second surprise venue, my Canon digital camera started acting up. When I got home I tried finding a solution online, and charged the battery and tried using the camera again, but to no avail. I ended up going out and buying a Nikon camera to replace it. I didn’t get to bed until almost midnight local time.
I haven’t even owned the Canon a year, and have taken over 12,000 photos with it (over 300 just yesterday) – most of them using the built-in zoom lens. I bought it in Bozeman, Montana last year shortly after starting my trip 4th of July and it failed the Monday of Memorial Day weekend this year. I can hear the gears which extend the zoom lens clicking and evidently they are made of plastic and are difficult to replace. I will have to sent it off for repairs but can’t let my blog peeps down. I need a camera TODAY for the 3rd surprise venue which I plan to visit before leaving Grand Junction and driving down to Cedar City, Utah for my 3-night stay down there.
I will post my overdue photos when I get to Cedar City – I PROMISE!! Thank you for your patience.
