Much as I loved the coastal cities, when it comes to natural beauty, the Southwest blew my mind. I love a good desert landscape, and you guys did not disappoint. I can’t decide whether I love New Mexico’s white sands or Arizona’s red deserts more! Here’s some of my favourite shots from the region.
There’s the red rocks of Sedona…
The can’t-quite-believe-what-I’m-seeing painted cliffs…
That big ol’ hole in the ground, the Grand Canyon
And the surreally blinding White Sands. I can’t believe entry is only three bucks.
Glad you enjoyed your trip to the Southwest. If you even make it back, I suggest you go to Bryce Canyon in Utah. It’s at the north end of what is known as the Grand Staircase (which includes the Grand Canyon) and it’s stunning.
Love your pictures! I have actually never stopped anywhere in the Southwest (just layovers or flying over), and your post definitely makes me want to 🙂 We’re hoping for a trip to the Grand Canyon within the next year.
I’ve never made it to White Sands, but I love New Mexico! A visit to Big Bend National Park in Texas is also on my travel list. It’s supposed to have stunning desert vistas.
I love these pictures!!! I have to get to White Sands. Btw, Southern Colorado also has Sand Dunes National Park-super cool. And, you can wrestle alligators there.
such stunning photos!!! this was my favorite scenery in the US too 🙂
