The Country I’m Leaving Behind

Posted by on November 5, 2014 in Advice + Tips, US National Parks | 0 comments

The US may have its faults, but it also has places of stunning beauty, much of which can be accessed for a song in the form of our National Parks pass. $80 gains you entry for a year, and is one of the best deals in our country in my book.

Over the past couple of years, while criss-crossing America between my adopted state of California and my birth state of Michigan, I was fortunate to see some of these astonishing places, including Zion, Bryce Canyon, Joshua Tree, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Mesa Verde, and more. I’d like to share a few photos of some of these places, before I leave the country for scenery beyond our borders…

First, Yellowstone. It’s way more than Old Faithful, and there’s no photoshop needed here – nature provides all the color. Plus, you may get to experience a buffalo jam!






Zion’s red rocks against blue sky is stunning enough, but add some fall colors…



…and don’t miss nearby Bryce Canyon.
