It's a busy week for Stephen. The high mesas of New Mexico are the starting point for Stephen's journey through the dramatic landscapes and peoples of the South West. The physicists at the Los Alamos Lab, who are unravelling the mysteries of dark matter, contrast starkly to the ecohouse dwellers living off the grid near Sante Fe. Staying with the Navajo Indians in Monument Valley in Arizona, Stephen learns to weave a basket, before heading to the sublime beauty of Lake Powell, and life aboard a luxurious a houseboat. He takes a World War 2 Flying Fortress Bomber to the 'Boneyard' in Tucson, where 3000 military planes are eerily mothballed, before living out a fantasy by becoming a cowboy at the Old Tucson Studios. In Nevada, he meets semi-naked Mormon missionaries during their calendar shoot, and is initiated into the intricacies of brothel life.
