Freki presents The Wild Wild West
Back in August my girlfriend and I went on a roadtrip in the western USA ( California, Utah, Nevada and Arizona ) with the goal of seeing some of the great nature experiences the region offers.. ( something I hadn't really done on earlier trips to the region )
As always I took a buttload of photos and as always I'm going to make a thread sharing some of them..
I got something planned for more extensive coverage of the various areas, but that will have to wait a bit, until then here's a mix of the various places we visited..
And yes, while this is mostly nature there are city pics too, so if red rocks doesn't do it for you I hope you enjoy the shots from Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles
Enough jibber jabber partner, let's head out west shall we.. yeehaw!
We start out in Las Vegas - Nevada
Valley of Fire State Park - Nevada
Kanab - Utah
Dixie National Forest - Utah
What hides beyond the forest?
Welcome to Bryce Canyon National Park - Utah
Kanab - Utah
Back in Nevada
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Griffith Observatory - Los Angeles
Crossing the Central Valley en route to the Sierra Nevada Mountains
Welcome to Yosemite National Park
And here we have Sequoia National Park ( and me driving our rental car through a tree )
General Sherman - world's largest tree ( ~2000tons )
Was hoping to see a bear, but sadly no luck
And finally we have Death Valley National Park
And here from 'Dante's View' we can see the lowest point in the US: Badwater Basin ( -86m )
And here we have the Badwater Basin salt lake up close
And finally here I am enjoying the 47C ( in the shade )
That's all partners - but by all means let me know what you liked ( or disliked ) as I have something on the drawing board that will cover the various areas on the planet I visit in more detain and I as always greatly appreciate feedback!

Good pictures so far! I liked the southern Utah and Nevada pictures the most. I'd love to see more of that!
I'll be in New Mexico and Arizona next week. But I am hoping to get to southern Utah some day.
