Photo Essay

Utah, a Outdoormans Playground

Arches National Park

What is not to love about Utah, there is more to this state than most people realize. I love that no matter where you go it is a photo op! I have mountains all around me. If I go east, I run into mountains, if I go west, I find the great Salt Lake, if I go south, I find the most beautiful country you will ever see. I have only been here less than a year and already have shot more pictures than I thought possible....

The ski resorts are sought after, we have the best snow on earth. You see we have this phenomenon that is called the " Lake Effect" if you are downwind of the Salt Lake the snow is heavier and accumulates quickly, it is messy to drive in, but for skiers and snowboarders, its paradise.

We have 5 national parks with breathtaking views. The Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Canyonlands and Capital Reef I have been to all but 2 of these and I have to tell you they will take your breath away.

I have so much to discover and look forward to my many discoveries. I hope that someday I will write a travel book, haha big dreams for me.

I love this state and all it has to offer, and this comes from a woman who is from Colorado and thought that that was the cooler state.

    Great pictures! Love your "Moon Over Utah" picture! Beautiful! I haven't been back since I got my DSLR! I cannot wait to get back to Moab to capture it in its beauty!
