I’ve been out of town for a couple of weeks, travelling up and down the United States. It was good to get away for a bit, but I’m definitely glad to be back home.
Normally I try and keep this blog horsey-related, but I can’t resist sharing some pictures. I didn’t take as many as I normally do, but I still got some that I’m happy with.
I got to spend a little time in Yellowstone National Park, (one of my favorite places in the world!) mostly around the Old Faithful geyser area. I really want to go back and explore more of the park.
We also took a short side trip through Zion park in Utah. This is another one of my favorite national parks.
…then drove through L.A. towards my old home.
I got to spend some time at my grandparent’s house, which was nice because it’s been several years since I’ve been there. I grew up in Southern California so going back brought back all sorts of memories. The constant headache I could’ve lived without, heh…
The long drive home brought us through the desert. I can’t remember the name of this place but the bridge I was standing on was very, very high. It’s hard to capture in pictures!
We spent a couple nights at the Grand Canyon as well. It had been at least 12 years since I had been there, so it was nice to be able to see it again. In person, it doesn’t look real. It’s difficult to comprehend just how enormous the entire canyon is.
While in Utah, we drove through Red Canyon…
…before stopping at Bryce Canyon. This place was beautiful too, with hundreds of white and orange rock formations that remind me of rows of houses or castles. It’s kind of bizarre.
It was a lot in a short amount of time, and even though I’ve been home a few days now, I’m still rather tired. As always more of my pictures can be found on my Flickr account if anyone is interested. 🙂
