By late May 2020 I was getting very fed up with all the travel restrictions, and almost out of photos for my daily posts. As most of the National Parks began to reopen, it was time to venture out onto the trail. I spent five days in Southwest Utah enjoying the incredible beauty of this area, one of my favorites in the world. Along with the ever popular Zion and Bryce Canyons, I also returned to the Valley of Fire in Nevada -- an incredible gem which is still uncrowded and well worth exploring. I also visited some new locations -- Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Snow Canyon, Cottonwood Canyon, Kodachrome Basin, and Capital Reef National Park. Over four and a half days I clocked up 60 miles of hiking and came home with well over 5,000 photos including the favorites you see below. Regardless of your views or opinion on current events, it is undeniably wonderful to get out and enjoy nature by hiking in the wilderness. Looks like that will be what I'm doing the rest of the year, weather permitting!
