Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and Travel Day to Moab- Photography Blog USA Trip
Spontaneous Day Trip to North Rim Grand Canyon
Photography blog day twelve – We took a rest day on day 12 and took a drive to the north rim of the Grand Canyon. This drive was boring with long stretches of nothing for miles. We made it to the north rim of the Grand Canyon and took some pictures before heading back to Zion National Park.
Once back in Zion we made a quick stop at the hotel for a fresh cup of tea then headed down to the watchman for sunset. We lucked out and go some scattered clouds and a little more color in the sky then other nights. We headed back to the hotel for the night to get ready for the next day.
Spontaneous Day Trip to Las Vegas
Photography blog day thirteen – We decided to a last-minute trip to Las Vegas we left our cameras at the hotel and took an R & R day to do some quick outlet mall shopping and to grab a burger at Walhburgers. The drive to Vegas was more interesting than the one the day before to the Grand Canyon. We got back to the hotel late and turned in for the night and pack for our travel to our next destination Moab.
Drive to Moab via Capitol Reef
Photography blog day fourteen – Today was our travel day to Moab Utah, we decided to take the scenic byway via Route 12. This took us via Capitol Reef National Park, this was well worth the drive. We stopped at a little bakery in Capitol Reef were Rachel got a mixed berry pie and I was going to get a yummy cinnamon roll, but they had sold out. I ended up with some chocolate chip cookies and chex mix I had packed.
Once we had some food in our tummies we headed down the road and took a walk to Hickman natural bridge. I experimented with some different prospective with my wide-angle lens you can see in the picture below what I ended up with.
We continued to make our way to Moab on a very straight and boring road for a few hours before making it to Green River this drive took just over 8 hours for us to make it to Moab. We happened to pick a 4-day weekend to come to Moab this means it is fairly busy here and it took use some time to get some dinner and turn in for the night.
