Out West: Day One Continued

One of the best things about Colorado and Utah is that they know they have breath taking views, so they often put little parking areas and scenic overlooks right along the highway. It makes photographing these states really easy, but it can also make for a long drive if you're like me and you want to stop at each and everyone of them.

The charred remains of trees after a large forest fire. This went on for thousands of acres.

The Grand Canyon truly is an amazing sight. If you've never been here, go! The layers of rock, the deep canyon walls that carve through the landscape for as far as you can see; mother nature will humble you pretty quickly.

On our way out of the park we saw a sign warning us to watch out for bison. Kaylah and I looked at each other and both laughed at how great it would be to actually see a herd of bison. A few seconds later we rounded a bend to see this...

A factory at sunset just outside of Las Vegas. 

After meeting up with our friend Andi and getting some much needed In-N-Out Burger, we ventured into Sin City.

This city certainly lived up to it's reputation. Neon lights, hookers, trashy people wearing next to nothing, fire breathers, magicians, the homeless, and the drunk; but it also had something I didn't expect. A very cool local scene overlooked by most of the tourists, and places like Container Park.

Photos taken with a Canon Mark III, with a Canon 20mm f/2.8, and Canon 135mm f/2.0 lens.
