The United States
I’ve been to the United States three times, for very different trips each time. The one from 2017 in the National Parks of Utah, Nevada and Arizona remains one of my ultimate favorites. The scenery is truly spectacular.
The hike down Bryce Canyon is without doubt the best hikes I’ve done in the US so far. It is a completely different and almost magical world.
Depending on where you are in the canyon, the type of trees changes along the way and they become quite scarce at some places.
Sunset at Bryce Point was very peaceful and elegant.
Understandably, the most famous view from Zion NP. And that road is a dream!
Another well-known view in Zion NP : the Virgin River flowing towards the Watchman.
The sun setting down on Capitol Reef National park and its very diverse and impressive rock formations.
The famous 4WD Shafer Road is one I would never drive on. I’m afraid of heights and those drops are insane. It also doesn’t look very large…
I loved how these two bikers going down the Shafer Canyon Road in Canyonlands National Park helped give a scale to this landscape.
Goosenecks State Park in Utah is not as well-known as Horseshoe Bend but is pretty impressive by itself. You can actually see two “horseshoe bends” next to each other.
The sunrise at Monument Valley remains my favorite of this trip. There is definitely something special about this place (especially in the morning) and so far, I think that no photo can do it justice.
Monument Valley once the sun had set, with a few cars still coming out of the track.
Probably the most famous (and artificial) lake from the West of the US and there was quite a few of us enjoying the sunset.
Quite lovely colors between the yellow and green trees and the deep blue of the Colorado River.
The moon is going under the horizon, just as the sun is about to rise in the other direction. Perfect morning at the Grand Canyon National Park.
Morning light on the upper rocks of the Grand Canyon: definitely my favorite time of the day there.
Some lucky people enjoying the sunrise over Sedona in air balloons. It must have been even more spectacular from the air.
Some beautiful autumn colors in the gorge that leads to Sedona, Arizona.
This remains one of my favorite photo from the 2014 trip, taken on Manassas National Battlefield. A woman was living in the house during the battle, as she had refused to leave.
The largest caverns in the eastern United States, under the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia.
