Recounting the trip by the numbers

Wow!  What a trip!

Thanks to everyone who followed along via social media (i.e. my Facebook page) on this trip.  My brother and I visited some truly unique places and captured some amazing shots.  It's always a pleasure to go out shooting with him because he's got a great eye and brings his own perspective to each location.  He also convinced me not to give up 10 minutes into a 5 hour hike to a magnificent view above Zion Canyon, so thanks, David!

(I'm also not-so-secretly hoping he settles out in that area when he marries in a few months so that I'll have yet another excuse to make my way out west, but that's up to him and his fiancée.)

While I'm still working on developing the photos (much more on that in a future post), here's a breakdown of the trip by the numbers.

Time for some feedback!

Obviously, we covered a lot of ground on this trip, so now I need some feedback.  We visited (in order): Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Monument Valley, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Antelope Canyon, and Horseshoe Bend.  My question for you is...

What would you like to see first?

I have a lot of photos to go through, but I'll let you help decide what I work on first.  Just leave a comment telling me what you'd most like to see!

 

Thanks for looking,

Adam@LiC
