What a bomber year! Honestly, I’m a very lucky duck to have explored some wonderful new locations and returned to some old favorites. Thought you might enjoy seeing a few highlights. (click on any of the photos or the link at the bottom to see the full gallery)
Back in the States, late September/early October brought some extraordinary foliage & color to the Rockies. My journey included Yellowstone, Teton, San Juan, Arches, Canyonlands, and Escalante/Grand Staircase National Parks.
The image below was captured while trying to outrun an approaching storm in Utah’s Castle Valley. Ten minutes after the rainbow appeared, I was being pelted by 1/4 inch hail and 40 MPH winds.
The most unique place visited? Visually, that’s got to be Iceland. Winter travel involved braving some high winds and a ton of rain. Totally worth it.
