This spring we took a road trip to see spectacular, eroded rocks of the southwest US. We hiked and marveled at the grandeur of nature, and I took my first Milky Way photos.
Above is Landscape Arch in Arches National Park. Landscape Arch has a span of 290 feet and is the fifth longest arch in the world.
Our road trip spanned four states: Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada.
We flew to Salt Lake City (A) and drove to Moab, Utah (B) to visit Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.
From Moab, we drove to Mesa Verde National Park (C) in Colorado to tour cliff dwellings from the 1200s.
From Mesa Verde, we drove to Page, Arizona (D) to walk through a red-rock, slot canyon.
We stopped at Zion National Park (E) before flying home from Las Vegas (F).
