I recently took a little vacation to the Southwest US, and of course I used this opportunity to take lots and lots of pictures.
You can view the full collection of photos here, but be warned – there are a lot of photos. If you’d rather not spend all day looking at all those photos (and keep in mind, those are just the GOOD ones – I actually took a lot more than that; it took me nearly 3 days to sort through them all) then here are some highlights:
I flew on a very small plane.
Did a little skeet shooting at a ranch.
Took a helicopter ride…
…down into the Grand Canyon.
Got on a raft.
Went through some rapids.
Did some adventuring.
Saw the Grand Canyon from the bottom.
Saw the Hoover Dam.
Spent some time in that crazy place known as Las Vegas.
Did some more adventuring in canyons (different ones this time).
Saw the sun rise from 8000 feet above sea level.
Did lots of hiking.
Did some hiking through some very narrow places.
Saw the Grand Canyon (from the top this time).
Both at sunset…
…and at sunrise.
All in all, a fun trip. And a great chance for me to really use my camera and try and take some interesting photos (different from the photos I usually get to take around home).
The full collection of photos is available (and nicely organized) over on Flickr, if you care to look.
