2017 | Yellowstone in Color

I prefer to shoot B&W, but Yellowstone’s landscape offers a beautiful color palette of blue skies, warm yellow grass, green trees, and turquoise colored spring water. It deserved to be shot in color.

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.

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.

2017 | Arches National Park

During the first week of September, I had the opportunity to travel with my family. We went on a week-long road trip, making stops in Nevada, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming. First stop was Moab, Utah and a quick visit to Arches National Park. Our time was limited and we went on a short hike to the Delicate Arch viewpoint trail. Although the lower viewpoint is quite far away from the Delicate Arch, it still had an amazing view and the trail featured a lot of beautiful red rocks.
