If you have a subscription to Adobe Cloud – you have free access to Adobe Creative Cloud Express. This used to be called Adobe Spark. I have no idea why they felt the need to change the name, but in any event – you have access to it and if you’re not familiar with it, think of it as CANVA on steroids. You can make all sorts of products using Express from business cards, to social graphics, scrolling web pages and even collages.

My annual trip to Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge is complete. I arrived home this past weekend. I drove 3100 miles round trip in my new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo X. By the way, when I say “annual” that was pre-COVID. In 2020 I did not go to Bosque because of the virus and it was very strange not to be in New Mexico around Thanksgiving. While things are not completely normal, the Refuge management DID grant me a commercial permit for this year (necessary for leading photo workshops on federal wildlife refuge property) and if they were willing to issue the permit, I was willing to go.
