Travel With Me! (Nevada, Utah, Arizona)

Updated: Jul 24, 2022

This is a series that I'm excited to include in my blog while it is still developing. This series will include my specific trip experiences, as well as some of my favorite places I have seen, and things I have done while on these trips. All of these pictures were taken by me on my iPhone XR and edited using Lightroom + MyLifeasEva's presets.

I'm starting this series off with my most recent trip from July 2020. I flew out west for eight days and was able to make it to Nevada, Utah, and Arizona.

Starting off the trip we flew into McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. While we did not spend much time in Nevada as it was not the main part of our trip, we did fly in early enough that we were still able to walk around the Vegas strip, see the water show at the Bellagio Hotel, and see some of the world famous Vegas casinos. Another cool place we got to see while in Vegas was an outdoor art exhibit called "Seven Magic Mountains" This is a man made, free, outdoor exhibit in the middle of a Vegas desert. The exhibit is part of the Las Vegas Art Museum, and I read they are trying to make it a permanent exhibit.

Straight from Seven Magic Mountains we headed over to our Airbnb in Kanab, Utah. Our first official day in Kanab (day 2 of the trip) consisted of going to Zion National Park, a place I have always dreamed of seeing.This is a must see if you are in Southern Utah. I loved how each point of the park held such a vast and different view. The hikes we went on were simple, yet had great views. My personal favorite view is the one I've attached below. Just sitting on the rock overlooking everything down below was so peaceful.

On day 3 we headed over to Bryce Canyon National Park, a definite contender for one of my favorite places I have ever traveled to. If you only get the chance to visit one of the National Parks in Utah, this would be the one I suggest! Of course I have seen Bryce Canyon in pictures, however, even looking back at the pictures I took it does not nearly do the beauty and vastness of the park justice. The red rocks are some like I've never seen before. On top of the beautiful color variations, the hoodoos and rock formations were some unlike any other place. We chose to do a moderate level hike which lasted about 2.5 hours and took us through the base of the canyon. After the hike, we drove a 20 mile scenic road and stopped at every viewpoint along the way. We ended the night attempting to watch the sunset from one of the overlooks, but unfortunately it started to storm right before sunset.
