A Look Back | Hualapai Ranch

These photos were shot almost seven years ago during a trip to Grand Canyon West. Our cabin was located farthest from the dining hall, so we had to take a short walk before and after meals. On the way back to the cabin, we took a longer route and wandered around the ranch.

Photos were shot with a Lomo LCA on MW Gekko.

A Look Back | Grand Canyon West in Color

These photos were shot almost 7 years ago during a trip to Grand Canyon West. I was planning to experience Skywalk, but I could not get over my fear of heights. It was still a great trip, I enjoyed being away from the city, and was more than happy to just walk around and take photos.

Shot with Horizon 202 on Kodak Gold 100.

2017 | Jackson Hole, Wyoming

We stopped by Jackson Hole, Wyoming on our way to Salt Lake City. We saw Grand Teton as we made our way into the city center. We had a quick lunch and checked out some of  the shops nearby the restaurant. After an hour and a half, we’re back on the road again.

2017 | Yellowstone in Black and White

We were in Yellowstone for over two days and made stops to some of its popular attractions. I did not keep up with taking notes during the trip, so I don’t recall the names of the places we’ve visited.

Here’s a few of my favorite photos:

2017 | Don King Western Museum

I can’t remember if we stopped by Sheridan, Wyoming on the way to or back from Yellowstone. I did not take any notes on this trip and so the days are all jumbled up in my head. While in Sheridan, we went to visit Don King Western Museum. It also serves as a saddlery so we got a glimpse of the saddle maker’s shop and tools. According to the museum attendant, it takes about a month or sometimes even longer to make a saddle. It all depends on the saddle makers’ level of experience and the intricacy of the saddle’s design.

2017 | Mount Rushmore

The second stop on our South Dakota trip was Mount Rushmore. I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful Black Hills landscape as we drove up the mountain. It was mid afternoon when we arrived and I was feeling a bit tired. We’ve been traveling for days and we still had a few more days of travel ahead. I didn’t hike up the Presidential Trail instead I took photos as I walked around the observation deck and amphitheater.

2017 | Crazy Horse Memorial

We spent a few hours in South Dakota, and visited Crazy Horse Memorial. The museum offers van rides that can take visitors to the top of the carving and see Crazy Horse up close. Since our time was limited, we settled for a walk around the museum and took photos of the monument from the viewing deck.
