a road trip to Utah

Somewhere in the middle of the desert along the 15
During this little week long hiatus, I took a road trip to Utah with J and some friends! It was a pretty incredible trip. We took our time driving over and stopped in Vegas for our first night. 

For the majority of the trip we stayed in the town of Glendale in the most perfect little cabin. It was a great home base for us to make day trips to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and even Antelope Canyon down by Lake Powell. On our last day, we drove over to my grandparent's house in Kanab for some epic 4-wheeling, petroglyph searching and little bit of shooting. 

I worked on another mini sketchbook during the trip too! It wasn't as productive as the Puerto Rico mini but I'm still really please with the results. Once I get it scanned up I'll share the results of it. You can get a peek on my Instagram if you'd like. These photos are some of my favorite photos from the trip. 
1. On our first day in Utah, we visited Zion National Park. We hiked a bunch of trails, including this pretty one at the Temple of Sinawava leading to the Narrows.
2. In the town next door, there was the Kane County Fair! We got to watch some of the steer judging and saw all the chickens, pigs and sheep. 
3/4. If you haven't heard of Antelope Canyon, put it on your bucket lists now! I went there years ago when I was little and haven't been back til now. It's an incredible space! I tried sketching during our tour but it was very tricky. I think I brought home about 100 photos of the changing light through that narrow canyon. 
5. We spent another day out at Bryce Canyon, another really gorgeous National Park. We got rained out unfortunately but we were able to see all the main sites and squeeze in a hike on the Fairyland Trail. 
6/7. Close to my grandparent's house, there's an old Western movie set. It's pretty run down now from lack of use and weather over the years but it's a great little ghost town to mosey through. 
8. All around southern Utah, there are some amazing petroglyph sites. There are some particularly awesome Anasazi sites close to the Utah/Arizona border. 


  1. Ah, that's where I live! Only much more north in Salt Lake City. We have such a pretty state, glad you enjoyed yourself!

    1. Oh I love Utah! I've been visiting the southern half for about 2 decades now! I haven't seen much of the north but I'm sure it's just as gorgeous :)

  2. Great pictures! It makes me sad that I'm from across the other side of the Atlantic :\

    1. If you ever venture this way, add Utah to your list of places to visit! It's in the middle so it's another trek to get there but it's so worth it!
