United States

If you know me, then you know that I’m a nature guy.  I love being surrounded by natural beauty and wildlife.  So it’s no surprise that the national parks in the United States would be some of my favorite travel destinations in the world.  You can’t beat the vast openness of the Grand Canyon or the rock formations at Bryce Canyon and Antelope Canyon.  There’s is just no other place on Earth where you can see this particular form of nature.

Visiting in September/early October is the best time to visit as the weather is favorable and not crowded.  The photos below were taken on two different trips spanning a total of 4 weeks.

The national parks include: Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Death Valley, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park, Sequoia National Park, Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Big Sur down California’s Pacific Coast highway.
