Hello, I am back. Sorry about the silence.
I’ve been away on a road trip visiting national parks of America’s west.
We began our journey at McCarran International Airport in Vegas, where we picked up the rental car and drove to Springdale, Utah.
Then made our way south, passing Paria Canyon, into Page, Arizona.
It was there we toured the Antelope Canyon
and walked up to the Horseshoe Bend.
After spending two nights in Page, we continued our journey eastward through the legendary Monument Valley
And ventured northbound into Moab, Utah – using the town as a base to visit Canyonlands
From Moab, we made the scenic but excruciating 8+ hour drive out of Utah, through Idaho to Jackson Hole, Wyoming – where we spent the next couple of days visiting Grand Teton National Park.
We concluded our trip at Yellowstone – the first National Park in the US and the world. We spent five days there visiting different sections of the park
From the magnificent rock formations at Arches and Zion, to the entrancing techno-colored hoodoos in Bryce; From the snow-capped mountain range and pristine lake in Grand Teton, to the dramatic geothermal hot springs and gushing geysers at Yellowstone
Each day we hopped on a journey that’s entirely different from the day before. It gave us a sense of how vast and varied the landscape is and made us appreciate this beautiful country we now call home.
God bless America!
