After indulging myself in recent holiday memories and posting fragments of my vacation in Dresden and ze city of Bangkok (oops, German accent rubbing off), I continued my trip down memory lane and spent some time browsing my 4 year old photos from our trip through the www (read: Wild Wild West).
To cherish our little anniversary (August 2009) of having a crazy 4,500 km road trip through the South West of the USA I reworked my personal top 25 photos (hardest choice ever) with some of my favourite mobile image editing apps, just like I did before with my shots from Barcelona, New Caledonia and La Reunion. I hope you like them!
Our tour started in Los Angeles with an obligatory stroll over Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Hollywood action: visiting the Universal Studios; here at the set of Water World, L.A. 2009.
Driving up the West Coast…
…via El Camino Real.
Passing funny ground squirrels…
…and non shy bird life.
Till we arrive in San Francisco.
The Golden Gate Bridge in fog.
After SF we head towards the Sequoia National Park – here: walking through a fallen trunk of a Sequoia Tree.
Formations in Death Valley.
Quite a contrast to the palm trees we also found over there.
On our way to Las Vegas.
With its crowded casinos…
…and colourful decorations.
The colour doesn’t stop when leaving Vegas: Fire Valley.
Passing Zion National Park.
Reaching Bryce Canyon (my favourite).
Getting only small impressions from the Grand Canyon. Really need to come back.
Flying over Lake Powell.
It’s a man-made reservoir on the Colorado River.
And a popular tourist spot.
Visiting Monument Valley.
Driving back towards the coast via Route 66 passing Calico, a ghost town.
Calico’s glass house build out of old empty bottles.
Back in LA; typical Baywatch scenery :-)
