The Trip West: From Badlands to Zion
After eight years of being city mice in NYC, we drove cross country in September, taking the northern route through Pittsburgh, Madison, WI, South Dakota, Wyoming and cutting down through Utah and Vegas. We took the interstate highways most of the way, visiting as many national parks as we could, given the fourteen days we had allotted for the entire trip. Here are some gems I snapped from the road.
Badlands National Park. Big Badlands Overlook. Yellowstone National Park. Our park ranger, Guida, in front of a gurgling mud pot called The Gumper. Grand Teton National Park. Sunset from Oxbow Bend Turnout. Bryce Canyon National Park. Visitors walking through "Wall Street." Zion National Park. Weeping Rock.
