The American Southwest is so beautiful and so diverse. This land consists of deserts, mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, valleys and canyons. Arizona is the home of the Grand Canyon and features over 120 different species of trees. In the deserts you see cactus, saguaros, sage brush, ocotillos, and hundreds of other plants. In the high country you'll find the splendor of spruces, firs, and pines.
Utah features some great National Parks, including Arches, Bryce, Canyonlands and Zion, to name a few. With a passion for photography I have visited every National Park in the West and some of them many times.
