2000 miles through Colorado & New Mexico

So earlier this year I had the opportunity to reunite with a lifelong friend, who also happens to be called Anthony to take a road trip through two magnificent States. I say two, but we actually visited five if you count the brief jaunt into a town called Anthony on the Texas border and a quick stop at the four corners monument.

I never tire of road tripping around the US, with it’s incredibly diverse landscapes. The 12 days went incredibly quickly and I snapped more pictures than you can shake a stick at, but I have selected some of my favorites below. They are a mix of snaps on my phone and shots taken on my ‘proper’ camera. Some of the highlights were Garden of the Gods just outside of Colorado Springs, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Zapata Falls, Los Alamos, Roswell, White Sands National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, the Very Large Array (one of the locations seen in ‘Contact’), and a fantastic day of snowboarding in Breckenridge¬†to end the trip on a real high.

 

 

Colorado Wilderness

In the fall of last year, I had arranged to spend a week in Denver with a friend, but when their plans changed I decided that I would still head out to Colorado but do a road trip instead. Just me and my camera and 1004 miles.

I have come to truly love Colorado, and it’s incredible variety of landscapes. Mountains, sand dunes, rolling hills, and some of the most epic roads anywhere on the planet. I will be back.

A brief jaunt into Arizona

So last year a friend of mine invited me on a quick trip to Phoenix and back from Vegas. We briefly stopped in Sedona and at the Grand Canyon. Stunning scenery – definitely hope to get back there one day, as these photos really don’t do it justice. Hope you like though.
