Southwest Road Trip (Part One)



Last week, Daniel and I returned home from our 11 day road trip of the Southwest! We had been talking about doing this trip for the past year, so it was amazing to get on the road and see these breathtaking sites! 

On our trip we visited Hoover Dam, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, Mesa Verde National Park, 4 Corners, Monument Valley, Painted Desert National Park, Petrified Forest National Park, Route 66 in Winslow, AZ, Meteor Crater, Flagstaff, AZ, Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Canyon, and (finally) the Grand Canyon!

Phew! Say that itinerary three times fast! 

Part One features photos from the first half of our trip. Get your creep on, and be sure to comment if you've been to any of these spots or are planning a trip of your own (I'd love to hear)!

Starting the trip off by cheesin' it in front of Hoover Dam! 

Began our first day at Zion by hiking to Angels Landing rightttt there!

Just a casual conquer-your-fear-of-heights-while-rock-climbing kind of morning. But actually, it was totally worth it and I'd do it again!

We made it!

Derpin' it on the way down.

Didn't fall off the mountain! #NailedIt
