Beautiful Photos From the American South-West

 There is something very special about the south-west of the USA. This incredible landscape full of giant red-rock monoliths, yawning canyons, hidden waterfalls, and the desolate desert has enchanted travelers for centuries. The states of Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California are home to some of the most incredible scenery on the planet and this backwater country is ideal for a spectacular road trip. Just don't forget your camera!

Of course, this picture list would not be complete without the mighty Grand Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the world and a famous landmark known throughout the continents. Over 270 miles long, 18 miles across at its widest point and a mile deep, yet still intricate and detailed with changing colors when viewed up close, it has enraptured visitors of all ages and nationalities for many decades. There is nothing quite like a Grand Canyon sunset:

"The Grand Canyon is carved deep by the master hand; it is the gulf of silence, widened in the desert; it is all time inscribing the naked rock; it is the book of earth."


~Donald Culross Peattie, The Road of a Naturalist, 1941
