Still in Phoenix and extending our stay. We have been hiking, biking, and exploring with our new friends.

I hadn't seen a cactus before we started this trip, I mean a real big cactus, and now we are doing trail runs and dogding dangerous plants almost daily. This place is cool, but it doesn't sound like we'd want to be here in the summer.

We have done lots of desert hikes, but we pushed it past sunset on this one and the turn out was beyond words. The trail was lit by the cresent moon plenty well for us to see our steps and the coyotes began yipping and howling in the distance. It was another world and the only danger was looking up at the stars too long and having a misstep. We crossed a man made bridge and stopped to take some pictures.

Playing music has been such a cool experience on this trip. People are pulled to it, and we've met the best characters at the shows. Davis just jumped on stage with me and was awesome! He and his brother are in a band called The Brothers Too.

This is Colin again. Michelle has been going back and forth with her cd distributor, cdbaby... She first submitted her cd back in early December when we were still in Ft. Collins, CO. Their first mistake was printing all three hundred of her cds without her name on them... We also just found out they take 40% of each cd sale and we have to pay to ship them. So... that is pretty terrible.

Having learned this we are no longer going to sell cds through cdbaby and will be working on getting them up on Michelle's website and on Amazon in the not so distant future. Until then I am making them available through my website below and also on the homepage.
