Can you guess...

...where we've been for the past week?

First hint: it's not Canada.
Second hint: I have drawn this creature before, not to mention this landscape, but this was the first time I'd ever seen any of it in person!

Bonus points if you know what we're holding (and they are two different specimens! Mine was a bit bigger.)

More after I recover from the jet lag...


  1. Are you in the American Southwest? Cool!

  2. Ok, Ok, I'm always up for a challenge! I'd say you are in the Sonoran Desert. And I think you're holding Gila Monsters (Heloderma suspectum). Did you catch them in the desert? Are you doing research for your next book? Did you design your T-shirts, they are unique. I like the red rooster on Gordon!!!

    Ok, now I want to go on vaca...

  3. Nice work, Lynn!!! I especially like the use of Latin!
    Bonus points if you can tell me what airport we are in right now. (free WiFi)

    And I bought both t-shirts on Etsy.

  4. You are brave to hold that. I can't play this game 'cause I already know so hope you had a great time and can't wait to read all about it.

    Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

  5. Ohhhh, you're killing me here... I'd say Phoenix airport??? But that's just a wild guess, without any background research.

  6. I'm guessing you went to visit the place and subject of your award winning book! That's Katie and you in the Sonoran Desert.

  7. Hey! You shoulda told me you were coming--I'd have baked a cake!

  8. Arizona or New Mexico. I'll second the vote for the Phoenix airport. Aren't gila monsters poisonous?

    Hope you had a lovely time.

  9. you look lovely in that first pic

  10. I'm with Lynn, I say the Sonoran Desert, and isn't that the cover girl from your book you are holding???
    I was only once in Arizona and loved it.

  11. You guys did very well with this. We were in Tucson, Arizona most of the week, and flew in and out of Tucson Airport.

    ANd John, thank you! :)


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
