More photos from 2019 travels

The beauty of Alaska is especially visible when driving from Anchorage to Homer.
During the second half of 2019 we traveled in the United States to Alaska, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. Our country has some of the most spectacular landscapes and scenery in the world and shouldn't be overlooked in favor of distant lands.

Halibut fishing on one adventure I'm glad I did but probably won't do again any time soon.
 The fish were delicious!
Bright pink fireweed takes over the countryside mid-summer in
Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.
Aialik Glacier was simply spectacular, and we especially enjoyed kayaking
very close to the ice.
We added Saguaro National Park in Arizona to our list of national parks visited.
It has a haunting beauty that can be felt as well as seen.
an addition to our Grand Canyon experiences was a stroll on the Skywalk at Grand
Canyon West on Hualapai territory.  It did not disappoint.
Hiking the Wave at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada provided
amazing displays of undulating red and white striations in sandstone rock.
This visit to Zion National Park included hiking The Narrows, a trek through the Virgin River amid towering canyon walls.
Hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park are simply indescribably--and among the most beautiful sights in the U.S.
Colors, shapes, textures, and designs found in Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona
are impossible to imagine--you must see this place to understand how awesome it is.
The red rocks of Sedona, Arizona are mesmerizing. One of the most photographed formations is Cathedral Rock which we finally captured in a reflection.
