This is the view from beautiful Artists’ Point looking out at the wonderful formations of Monument Valley on the Utah/Arizona border.
This was a beautiful evening to be out in Monument Valley on the Utah/Arizona border. The colors were muted but fantastic.
This formation is called The Totem Pole and stands stoically in Monument Valley on the Arizona/Utah border. It is a beautiful formation and a very few of you might recognize it from the climbing scenes in Clint Eastwood’s 1975 film The Eiger Sanction.
This is right at dusk looking out from Sunset Point in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. The hikers in the bottom left lend some perspective.
This is Natural Bridge (actually an arch, not a bridge) found in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.
This is sunrise from Sunrise Point in Bryce Canyon National Park. No matter how many times I come here, it never ceases to leave me in awe. Today was no exception, especially with the snow.
Grafton is billed as the “best preserved ghost town in Utah”. It has received a lot of care and upkeep since my first visit there many years ago, but I guess it’s better than just letting it disintegrate in the desert sun. It is certainly a cool place to visit, and beautiful right at sunset.
This butte is all lit up in the early evening glow of the sun. Spring is almost in the air. This is outside of Springdale, Utah.
This is the Majestic View Lodge on the outskirts of Springdale, Utah just as the sun is setting. The mountains of Zion National Park are glowing.
This is Highway 9 just before the entrance to Springdale, Utah. The mountains of Zion National Park are spectacular in the background.
This is the beautiful Navajo Falls on Havasu Creek near Supai, Arizona. The creek really is that beautiful color as it pushes into Grand Canyon.
This is another shot of the breathtaking Havasu Falls near Supai, Arizona. The 9 mile hike to get here was definitely well worth it.
Havasu Falls, near the town of Supai, Arizona, is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. These waterfalls were absolutely breathtaking, and the colors are very real.
This is the main drag through the amazing little town of Supai, Arizona. The main village on the Havasupai Indian Reservation, Supai has a population of only 208 residents. There are no roads leading to Supai, you must either walk, fly or ride there.
I’ve always really liked this building. This was originally Hollywood First National Bank, built in 1927, at 6777 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood, California. The architects were Meyer and Holler who also designed the Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian Theatre and Culver Studios, among others. From 1927 to 1932, it was Los Angeles’ tallest building, and is one of only a handful of buildings in the city with gargoyles. Today, it sits empty at one of the most famous intersections in the city, a ghost of what once was in Hollywood.
This is the stunning obelisk outside the Griffith Observatory in Hollywood, California. The observatory is a must-see when you visit, either by day or at night (or both!).
This is right around dusk in Hollywood, California. You can see the Hollywood Walk of Fame stars in the sidewalk, the beautifully lit El Capitan Theatre and the infamous Roosevelt Hotel in the background. I like this shot of Hollywood.
I like this photo because it shows where it all started. Grauman’s Chinese Theatre opened May 18, 1927 in Hollywood California. Two of the very first sets of prints, Norma Talmadge and Douglas Fairbanks are included in this photos along with more recent additions. It’s silly, but it still makes me smile.
