We just got back home to Colorado after a quick road trip to San Diego to visit my relatives and friends. Instead of doing the drive in one grueling day like I used to do, we took our time and broke up the drive into three days each way, giving us the opportunity to see some of the sights in the desert along the way. Here are a few photos from the trip! Above is Cedar Breaks National Monument, where we camped the first night.
On our way back we drove through Zion National Park, stopping to hike up to Angels Landing. This was a questionable decision for a September Saturday, as the [paved!] trail was clogged with people and felt like a Disneyland attraction. But regardless of the crowds, it is always a spectacular hike with killer views of Zion canyon!
We continued to Capitol Reef National Park and the next day we did a wonderful hike down Chimney Rock Canyon, where sheer sandstone walls tower overhead.

I have never seen anything like that before. An awesome view and formation. Makes me want to come and visit.
Love these pics! I’ve never been able to travel much, so this is just a glimpse into what I’ll see in the next few years as I travel. Thank you for what you do! 🙂 I especially like the last one.
Nice Jack. You made me want to go there even more.
Thanks all for the comments! 🙂
Awesome photos of red and white mountains. Looks very nice.
