The sky was a brilliant blue throughout my trip to Arizona and Utah. When you add that to the sunshine it made a perfect backdrop to some unforgettable places. Every day the mountains and canyons were even more remarkable because of the beautiful September weather. Here is an example from Zion National Park:
Later that day the clouds disappeared.
Here are some other scenes, including a friendly little bird at the Grand Canyon that posed for a picture for me.

More adventures coming soon!
I just got back from a trip to Arizona and Utah, with stops at the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Zion, and Bryce Canyon. I also drove on Route 66 (now Historic 66) in Flagstaff, Arizona. There was a lot of driving involved (over 1000 miles) to get from place to place as well as a lot of walking/hiking on trails at the parks. Everything was gorgeous and the weather was warm – but not hot – and cooled down considerably after the sun went down.
Here is an overview of some of the places I visited, with more from each place coming soon!
