Just back from another successful Backcountry Journeys trip to the canyons of Southern Utah. We explored Zion and Bryce National Parks as well as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The weather cooperated very nicely for a landscape oriented photography adventure. We had broken cloudy skies most of the type and even some dramatic snow-storm conditions. Mostly though I have to say hats off to a really fun group of photographers who made the experience really enjoyable for everyone. We stayed in some great lodges, ate some great food and made some new friends. Just a short post today to share some of my images from the trip! Enjoy.
