Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon sunsetI arrived at Bryce Canyon a few hours before sunset and I was able to spend some time scouting for a good position for sunset. Although the clouds did not clear as much as I hoped it was still a great nature show. I spent the morning before dawn in the park. I hiked down into the canyon a bit to find a good spot for sunrise. Get there before sunrise and wait till the sun is up to watch the colors change. If you have time hike down, but remember you have to come back up. Allow yourself some time to go off the beaten path a bit in order to find some amazing shots and less seen views. To allow more time at Bryce my group and I chose to skip Zion and visit another time when we could truly experience the park.

Sunrise Over Bryce Canyon

The Journey: Rediscovering Myself

Summer Slump

I have not posted in a while due to the fact that I have been on the road for the past several weeks. I always try to travel somewhere during my summer vacation from school. This is my chance to get out and see the world. It is also an opportunity to photograph and prepare my next travel presentation for area schools. However, this also means that when the trip is over I have to keep myself moving when the excitement is gone.

After months of long hours at school and training for my summer trip the last thing I want to do is get up in the morning and do my workout routine. After spending weeks hiking in a few national parks in the western United States my body and mind needed a break. Sometimes a break is needed, but getting back into the swing can be hard. Even…

Arches National Park

Broken Arch

On my way to Yosemite I was able to spend one evening and morning at Arches National Park outside of Moab, Utah. Arches was an awesome experience to see the natural arches created by erosion. It was also a great place to see the amazing rock formations. Expect to hike to see several of the arches. Some are easy and some are more difficult. Unfortunately, due to time constraints I was unable to do as much hiking as I wanted. I do recommend starting early to avoid the heat of the day and the crowds. If you have time take in a sunrise or sunset.
