Grand Teton National Park #74160 Purchase
After nearly three weeks of editing and processing files from my recent SW trip the first group of new additions is ready to view. It is always fun to relive the trip by processing new images. Since returning home it has rained nearly every day, with some newsworthy storms causing flooding. So working on photos from the warm dry Southwest provides a nice respite from the soggy weather outside.
This first group of new releases contains images from the following locations. Additionally the New Images Gallery contains links to previous 2021 locations.
- Craters of the Moon National Monument Idaho*
- Grand Teton National Park Wyoming
- Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Red Canyon on Utah side*
- Dinosaur National Monument, Utah and Colorado*
- Canyonlands National Park Utah
* Locations I photographed in for the first time.
Craters of the Moon National Monument #73993 Purchase
Flaming Gorge National Monument #74267 Purchase
New Additions from New Locations
Flaming Gorge was an interesting location in that it was on the very edge of the Colorado Plateau. Since the Red Canyon area was nearly deserted it was also a welcome relief from the crowds of Grand Teton National Park. Crowds are an ever present issue when visiting national parks, especially in the Southwest. Even in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall there is no escape.
Steamboat Rock Dinosaur National Monument #74439 Purchase
Dinosaur National Monument was another first time visit location for me. It’s always exciting to explore and photograph new territory. In Dinosaur I was like a kid in a candy store! This was especially true on the thrilling ride to the remote camp at Echo Park. A sometimes rough 13 mile dirt road ends at a beautiful primitive camp alongside the Green River. Along the way are historic ranches and Fremont Petroglyphs. At Echo Park the scene is dominated by the imposing monolith of Steamboat Rock. Overall this was one of the most enjoyable and memorable locations on the entire trip.
