LOST GULCH LOOKOUT // BOULDER / COLORADO

A HOT AND HAZY SUMMER EVENING GAVE WAY TO AN ABSOLUTELY EPIC SUNSET IN THE FRONT RANGE OF THE ROCKIES. A FEW SMOLDERING FIRES THAT WERE SURROUNDING THE AREA THREW UP ENOUGH SMOKE TO REALLY ACCENTUATE THE LAYERED LANDSCAPE.

MORMON ROW // JACKSON / WYOMING

PERHAPS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN RANGES IN AMERICA, THE GRAND TETONS TOWER ABOVE THE SURROUNDING RIVER PLAINS.  EARLY SEASON SNOW STORMS MADE IT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE SUN TO COME OUT BUT WHEN YOU GET JUST A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT, THE COLORS REALLY BEGIN TO SHOW OFF.

LOWER YELLOWSTONE FALLS // YELLOWSTONE N.P. / WYOMING

THE VIEW OF LOWER YELLOWSTONE FALLS FROM LOOKOUT POINT. IT MAY NOT BE AS WELL KNOWN AS NIAGARA FALLS, BUT LOWER YELLOWSTONE FALLS IS OVER TWICE AS TALL AND IS THE LARGEST VOLUME WATERFALL IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS.

SUNRISE // CLINGMAN'S DOME / NORTH CAROLINA

HAIRPIN TURNS PROVIDE YOUR BEST PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES ON THE DRIVE UP TO CLINGMAN’S DOME WITHIN GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK. IF YOU TIME IT RIGHT YOU CAN CATCH THE SUN PAINTING THE PEAKS OF THE MOUNTAINS THAT ALL LOOK UP TO CLINGMAN’S DOME.

OBSERVATION POINT // ZION / UTAH

Zion National Park is famous for the hair raising hike up Angel's Landing with its 1,000' sheer drops along a narrow path with no railing.  But if you opt for the Observation Point Trail hike, you will actually find yourself looking down upon Angel's Landing.  The climb is incredibly strenuous, but the views are worth all of the pain.

SCHWABACHER'S LANDING // MOOSE / WYOMING

THE MAJESTIC GRAND TETONS IN ALL THEIR GLORY RISING ABOVE THE SNAKE RIVER AT SCHWABACHER'S LANDING.  SUNRISE IS THE BEST TIME TO SHOOT THE TETONS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY CLOUD COVER PREVENTED PICTURES OF FIRST LIGHT.  INSTEAD, THE SKIES CLEARED JUST AROUND 8:30 AM TO PROVIDE THIS VIEW.

GRAND CANYON OF THE YELLOWSTONE // CANYON VILLAGE / WYOMING
       
     
GRAND CANYON OF THE YELLOWSTONE // CANYON VILLAGE / WYOMING

OLD FAITHFUL MAY BE THE BIG NAME AND DRAW FOR YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, BUT THE CANYON CARVED BY THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER IS PROBABLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FEATURE OF THE PARK. STANDING ATOP LOWER FALLS, THE SHEER POWER OF THE 310' DROP IS SOMETHING YOU CAN'T DESCRIBE.  THE VIEWS ARE HARD TO DESCRIBE AS WELL, LUCKILY WE HAVE CAMERAS TO HELP WITH THAT.

WHEELER PEAK OVERLOOK // TAOS / NEW MEXICO

AS HIGHWAY 518 TWISTS AND TRAVERSES THE RUGGED ALPINE LANDSCAPE OF NORTHERN NEW MEXICO YOU BEGIN TO WONDER WHERE THE OPEN VISTAS OF THE HIGH PLAINS WENT.  HOWEVER, YOU KEEP THE COURSE AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU SUMMIT A HIGH MOUNTAIN PASS AND A VIEW LIKE THIS ONE OPENS UP TO REMIND YOU WHERE YOU ARE.

360 BRIDGE // AUSTIN / TEXAS

THE PENNYBACKER BRIDGE, LESS FORMALLY KNOWN AS THE 360 BRIDGE, SPANS THE COLORADO RIVER JUST WEST OF DOWNTOWN AUSTIN, TX.  THE ROCK OUTCROPPINGS TO THE NORTH SIDE OF THE BRIDGE PROVIDE THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO CAPTURE THE STEEL BRIDGE IN ALL ITS GLORY.

SPANNING THE 1300' WIDE AND 600' DEEP RIO GRANDE GORGE, THE GORGE BRIDGE IS AS FAMOUS AS IT IS IMPRESSIVE. IT CURRENTLY STANDS AS THE 7TH TALLEST BRIDGE IN THE U.S.A. AND HAS MORE MOVIE CREDITS THAN MOST ACTORS ON IMDB.
