outdoor photographer's dream

  • 1. Cedar City
    Cedar City, Utah

    A great jumping off point to see Bryce. We drove out in the morning and came back at night. Watch out for deer! Take a short drive north to Parawan Gap to see the glyphs. There are quite a few! If you are in a driving mood, Cedar Breaks is also lovely and close by. When you leave Vegas and go north the elevation continues to increase. We found that by staying a few days in the Cedar City area it gave us a chance to become more acclimatized before hiking in Bryce. We were advised to eat at Ruby's in the park. On the way in there were no less that 4 busloads of tourists in line with the same idea! So we back tracked a mile to the Subway for sandwiches, wish we had brought our own. Ate at Ruby's on the way out in between crowds and it was excellent!

  • 2. Snow Canyon State Park
    Snow Canyon State Park, Utah, United States

    Vegas and Bryce speak for themselves. Snow Canyon and it's petrified sand dunes, slot canyon, marked trails, paved trail, and variety of rock textures made this one of the more accessible and incredible to photograph parks around. All for a $5 entrance fee! The light hits differently each day showing you new and amazing nooks and crannies to explore. We were often alone on trails - no crowds. Do not wear open toe shoes, and remember water and sunscreen :-)

  • 3. Las Vegas
    Las Vegas, Nevada

    For the nongambler this is still a very interesting town. We stayed on one end of the strip (lots of airplane noise!) and drove to the Fashion Show for easy, free parking and walked up and down the strip from there. We ate at some overpriced but charming places inside the large hotels. The Paris hotel's bakery was a favorite! Also, don't turn your nose up at the food court in the mall. The Greek food was awesome for the price! If you go to see the sirens show at TI be aware that the cannon blasts, etc. focus a pretty hot blast into the audience. I'm glad I wasn't in the first row! All in all lots of fun and a million ways to spend a ton of money :-)
