This must have been my most favorite day out of the whole duration of our trip in the South West. We woke up early and caught the sunrise looking over Monument Valley. I must say, it was certainly a view that one could not easily forget. After watching the sunrise, we hurried to check-out and drove down the road where the infamous running scene of Forest Gump was taken. Once we got the shots we hoped for, we then rushed over to Antelope Canyon where we explored the Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons to end our day.
Instead of catching the sunrise, we instead slept in since it was raining out. We started the day off by swinging by Lake Powell for some quick photos, then we drove a few hours over to Bryce Canyon to see one of the world's greatest wonders. Looking back at the shots some of the Mighty Killers had taken, I was definitely stoked to see the place with my own eyes. It started pouring but we were still able to get some pretty epic photos. It's almost impossible to get a bad shot here since the place itself was something out of this world. Knowing that the drive takes up most of the day, we scurried the shots we wanted most and made our way towards Monument Valley where we got a cabin for the night right in front of the three infamous monuments.
Last week I was able to join Bryan and Silas on a trip and ventured our way through the South West. In four days, we were able to travel throughout Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. The drive was one thing that I did not mind at all since the scenery throughout the drive was exquisite as if being taken right out of a movie. It was quite remarkable in comparison to the drive towards the Pacific Northwest. We were able to touch down on the Valley of Fire, Horse Shoe Bend, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, and Zion National Park all the while being able to stay in cabins that were very close or right at these destinations. The weather wasn't ideal nor was it what we hoped for. However, we made the best of the situation and in the end it did indeed turned out to be a trip to remember. Shoutout to the bisons and horses we met a long the way.
