American Southwest Sights to Inspire Wanderlust

I recently discovered the rugged and spectacular beauty of the southwest, particularly Arizona and Utah. I am officially in love and willing to share my love with all of you! Here are some of my favorite American southwest sights.

Just. Go. Here

The Red Rocks of Sedona, taken excitedly from a fast moving car.

The hiking in Sedona is amazing!
Eventually you get to see this really cool arch called Devil's Bridge
This incredible and just a little scary structure is called Devil’s Bridge. My mother and I got lost coming back from this place and almost had to spend the night in the desert. Hilarious story, really.


This is Bell Rock. A beautiful and slightly less exciting hike than Devil’s Bridge. Virtually impossible to get lost, even for me.

Bell Rock hiking area. I’m loving these colors.


It’s the freaking Grand Canyon! I cried when I saw it. For real tears. It’s so grand and overwhelming. Totally deserves it’s name.


It’s really colorful as well as huge.


Dude, it’s REALLY big

Ahh, a sunset drive through Zion National Park, Utah. I must go back and properly hike this when I have more time.


Zion at sunset is a religious experience


Bryce Canyon is not so far from Zion and is breathtaking


These weird rocks are called hoodoos
These weird rocks are called hoodoos and are formed by water eroding the rock.
Hoodoos come in many shapes and sizes and are always super cool!

There is even seating that is semi-safe. Just don’t move too much!

This hike is called “wall street”
Never miss an opportunity to be angelically bathed in light
