A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to road trip from Vegas to Salt Lake City. I went to Vegas to attend WPPI– the biggest wedding photography convention in the world. This was my fourth trip to WPPI and I love going because I get to see the latest and greatest in the photography industry, meet with vendors, and network with photographer friends from around the country! Oh, and Vegas is kinda fun too! ;)
But this time, I secretly went to WPPI because at about this time last year, I came across a blog post on a fellow Minneapolitan’s photography site and I knew I needed to visit Zion- a mere 3 hour drive from Vegas. I immediately put WPPI 2014 on the calendar. Then I figured, hey, as long as I’m in Utah, maybe I should hit up Arches National Park too. Oh, and let’s just throw Goblin in there too. I mean, I can fly home from Salt Lake City and it’s on the way.
I’m going to do a separate blog post to share my images of Zion, but for now, I wanted to share my images from Arches National Park and Goblin Valley State Park. Some of these images were even taken out of plane and car windows- on the road. Utah is that beautiful. The whole state looks like a national park. I can’t wait to go back to Utah- one could easily spends weeks/months enjoying the parks. Sadly, we zipped right past Bryce Canyon and Canyonlands. There are too many parks to cram into one week.
As always, when I travel personally, I travel light. I just brought my trusty Contax, a bag full of Fuji film, and my iPhone. There are also one or two pictures taken with my travel mate, Laura’s, digital camera. I also want to give a shoutout and big virtual hug to Laura. This girl is so amazing, so full of life, and such a fun travel partner. We had a blast! #laura2themaxx!!
