While I was still working as a wedding photographer, I would venture out to Las Vegas to the WPPI conference once a year. Since I don’t really gamble, after a couple of days finding all the most delicious places to eat and doing a whole lot of people watching on the strip, I knew I needed to get out of the city, so I rented a car, googled “fun things to see within a few hours driving distance of vegas” and went off exploring. From Red Rocks Canyon just on the outskirts of Las Vegas, which, while not very large, was filled with gorgeous rock formations and colors, showing millions of years of metamorphosis of the landscape, to Zion National Park, where I saw some spectacular vistas, I couldn’t believe the stunning variety of the landscape just a few hours from the city. Probably the most amazing stop for me, though, was Antelope Canyon – a crevice-like small slot canyon that, in some areas, was barely wide enough for one person to move through.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip:
