We recently decided that it would be a good idea to try and see as many national parks as possible before we die. This idea is what prompted the trip…plus we both had wanted to see these places for quite some time. All destinations were brand new to both of us, with the exception of our less-than-1-day visits to Zion and Grand Canyon.
If you’re interested in our commentary and photos, you can find them here:
This was our fourth trip to Death Valley. Our main objectives this trip were to see some sights not yet seen, revisit some sites we had seen, and do some hiking. We did all of that. We also got to take a ride in a small, 4-seater airplane, which was totally unexpected and the highlight of our trip. To bypass the story and jump straight to the photos, click here.
Here’s how it happened:

We’re trying to visit, and photograph, all the National Parks in the US. On this trip, we marked off two. To skip this riff-raff and see photos only, click these Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Valley of Fire.
We started in Ridgecrest at the Motel 6, en route to June Lake, to photograph the Sierras from the back seat of the car. Now I’m sure we could’ve stayed at a place with a better neon sign and cool name like ‘China White Inn’ or whatever. To bypass this hurly-burly, clickPhotos.
