Wild Wild West

After traveling around Utah and Arizona in an RV for two weeks, I have fallen in love with the West. Bruce Springsteen’s song “Outlaw Pete” and the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid both have new meaning after seeing the sights for myself. Vast expanses of land, multicolored canyon layers and killer sunsets never lose their novelty- the sights out there just never get old. Take a look for yourself.

The various colors in the rock layers were caused by water and wind erosion over time.

The contrast of the orange rock against the deep blue sky made for some great photographs.
