Valley of the Gods

 

It is almost time to begin another adventure…and still there are images from the last one to Utah.  Valley of the Gods is not to be confused with Garden of the Gods in Colorado.  We were on our way to Monument Valley from Bryce National Park and found this dirt road, labeled with Valley of the Gods.  Well, being the adventurous sort when in new places, we decided to take this dirt road.  It was an adventure, for sure!  The road itself was a bit scary and rough, but the sights we saw were incredible!  Here are just a few of the rock formations we saw there.  Most of these were shot from the car, sometimes clicked as the car was moving, so I apologize for the quality in some. It was a bit like Monument Valley.

Bryce Canyon, Utah

Our country has the best National Park system.  We were privileged to have visited seven of them this past fall!   While visiting Utah, we visited Bryce Canyon.  The rock formations and hoodoos were so very interesting to view and the vastness of the land area was awesome!  We walked around for several days with our mouths open in awe of this beautiful area.  I was constantly clicking my camera for ten days as we visited these parks in Utah.  It has taken me a while just to go through them!

If you are 62 or above in age, you can purchase a lifetime park pass which gets you into any National Park for free.  What a deal!   All around our great country there are National Parks….49 of them to be exact.  What a treasure these parks are to the American people.

Here are some images from Bryce Canyon.

Arches National Park

We recently had the delightful opportunity to travel to Utah to explore our National Parks. It is so beautiful there, it literally took our breath away.  The the places that we visited were many and today I am featuring the Arches National Park.  We were so amazed at the size of all the formations and the literal miles this park stretches out in all directions.  Hopefully, you will see how well our Nation does with the administration of this beautiful park.
