National Parks Snapshot Memories

As seen on my blog LoveYourRV.com


In the last couple of years we have traveled all over America and visited many of the great National Parks. It is always exciting to explore a new National Park with expectations of seeing something unique and awe-inspiring. So far we have never been disappointed. Iíve taken two photos from a dozen parks we visited and put together a blog post I call National Parks Snapshot Memories.
Saguaro National Park, Arizona


Home of North Americaís largest cactus, the size of them blew me away. Inside the park we had a great time hiking among them. One evening we hiked to capture the sunset but the scene looking the other way at the Saguaro on the hillside with the soft evening light on them and the moon captured my attention. The Saguaro take on human qualities due to their arm like branches. These two seem to be in an embrace.


Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah


I loved the Hoodoos at Bryce, especially in the soft glow of the morning light. Driving along the rim there are many spots to pull over and view the canyon. Looking down at the amphitheatre of hoodoos and seeing for miles was breathtaking.


Joshua Tree National Park, California


Two memories of Joshua Tree are the sunsets with the silhouetted trees and driving through the park with an absolute forest of these unique cactus on either side.


Everglades National Park, Florida


Pelicans and sunsets. We took a canoe trip in the bay and were able to paddle up to the pelicans perched in the mangrove trees and at the end of the day were treated to amazing sunsets.


Arches National Park, Utah


I loved the giant arches, thatís me to give the photo scale. Balanced Rock and prehistoric looking landscape. I expected to see a T-Rex at any moment.


Zion National Park, Utah


Anne and to other photographers waiting for the right light on The Watchman. Strolling through the Virgin River valley on a warm spring day doesnít get much better.


Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona


Hundreds of petrified logs strewn across the desert landscape and the amazing colors of the exposed earth in the painted desert area.


Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas


Big transport rig steams by with the magnificent El Capitan in the background and we stop and get out to admire the effect of a brief passing snow storm on the mountains.


Big Bend National Park, Texas


Two memorable hikes. First to an overlook of the Rio Grande splitting the US and Mexico. Second through the Grapevine Hills at dusk at the end of a warm day.


Capitol Reef National Park, Utah


The setting sun lights up the rock formation known as the Castle. We take in the sheer enormity of the sand stone cliff faces during a stop along the scenic drive.


Badlands National Park, South Dakota


Viewing the vast area of Badlands and getting ready for a sunset walk through some Badlands terrain.


Yosemite National Park, California


Two favorite places in Yosemite. Valley View beside the Merced River looking down in to the Yosemite valley. Up at Glacier Point with a great view of Half Dome.



Iím hoping to add to my National Parks Snapshot Memories soon with a planned spring 2013 visit for the first time to Death Valley NP. Anne and I are pumped!
