Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park

‘Otherworldly’ is an apt description for Bryce’s haven of hoodoos. For those of you who don’t hike, Bryce Canyon’s beauty can also be feasted upon right from the Rim Trail, which offers a grand buffet of brilliant hues and views of hoodoos.

Zion National Park

Zion National Park

Click a pic! The Pacific Northwest on Granite The drive nearing Yosemite is littered with the same craggy rocks and oak trees I remember from the days I spent on my grandmother’s farm as a child in southern Washington.  Yosemite itself makes you feel like you’ve stepped into a piece of history, back when there was nothing but nature for as far as the eye could see in any direction. There’s som
