Yesterday I posted an image of Canyonlands NP in Utah. You don’t have to go into a park to see the natural beauty of the land. This is on a state highway headed towards Bryce Canyon National Park not far from Panguitch Utah.
Out of all the states I have visited, Utah was the biggest surprise. I don’t know what I expected but it seemed that every turn of the road brought new vistas that were prettier than the last. This image was a throw away image. I never looked at it twice until today. I had such wonderful shots of the hoodoos of Bryce canyon and the delicate sculptures of Arches National Park. I never looked at this one as being special but now decades later I think it is quite a nice image. This is Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah.
I live in Pennsylvania and Harrisburg is our Sate Capital. It is a perfectly nice place but not pretty in any sense of the word. Jackson Mississippi and Austin Texas are both beautiful capital cities. However, the best in my opinion is Santa Fe New Mexico. One of the reasons is because they have strict building covenants in the city so the old city looks the same as it always has. Sure there are new buildings but they all conform to the code and the result is an adobe old west environment. See more scenic images at my commercial site by clicking here.
