My next stop was going to be in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. I was happy to find out that I would be driving through a few other national parks that I had read about. I found myself stopping to get a few pics some of the miraculous landscapes. But I was also on a time constriction so the stops were limited. One stop that I didn't get any pictures of was in Canyon Reef National Park. In the middle of this huge canyon and red walls was a little u-pick apple orchard where I stopped to grab a few.
Some where on High way 12.
Southern Utah landscape is so diverse. One minute its towering red rock, next you are in a forest, then passing by mighty canyons. Abruptly, the speed limit drops to 25m/hr due to curvy roads and steep drop offs, then back to dry dessert and cracked up river beds, then comes a meadow with horses grazing. Pretty great.
A little History: In 2008 I became a traveling nurse, packed a few important things on my sail boat and left home (Michigan) to start a new adventure. I work in coastal areas and have lived on the boat ever since. Over these last few years I have been to many different places and want to share what I have found in the form of art/photography. I have so much to learn.
