Freki presents The Wild Wild West

Howdy buckaroos!


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


















"Thors Hammer"








Kanab - Utah


Back in Nevada


Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area




























Griffith Observatory - Los Angeles








Hollywood








Beverly Hills




Santa Monica




















San Francisco
















































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.
