I have enjoyed visiting three United States National Parks over the last week. They are the Grand Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands. Each one featured unique geological formations which bring people from all over the world to see and photograph. I will have more details later about each park. This week, since I am sitting in a McDonald’s using their Wi-Fi, I will only post a photo from each park.
The Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona was very, very windy. I was lucky to get an HDR set of photos in during a short break in the gusts of wind. Lucky, too, there were nice fluffy clouds in the sky. The previous two days was clear blue skies with no clouds. The clouds really added to the grandeur of the canyon.
Arches National Park near Moab, Utah had those cloudless blue skies. The color of the rock formations complemented those skies very well. The park has 2,000 arches inside it’s borders with many having easy access to visitors as you can see below. The people give you a good idea how big these arches are.
Canyonlands National Park is also near Moab, Utah and much bigger than Arches encompassing 527 square miles of rugged and picturesque canyons and rock formations. This view is from the Green River Overlook showing how the Green River has carved out a canyon into the landscape.
That’s it from MickeyDs in beautiful downtown Moab, Utah!
