Utah on an iPhone

I've been quite a road warrior- Utah 2 days last week and South Dakota 2 days this week. I will say that Utah is stunning! I'd been to Salt Lake City before, but never on the back roads and scenic routes. I actually this a few of these photos are from the Virgin River Canyon in Arizona.

We flew in to Vegas & headed North to SLC, with some work stops along the way. I took my big camera, but it was in the backseat in a briefcase. So I grabbed the iPhone and snapped away through the windshield.

This is a very narrow canyon and the road abuts right up against the walls.

The iPhone is pretty wide angle & doesn't include a real zoom function, so some of these include the car interior & the hood.

All in all, I am impressed with the iPhone photo quality & you can't beat the convenience.

We were so close to so many National Parks- Bryce, Zion, and a few others. I really want to go back!

It shows up better in other photos, but they colors and patterns in the rocks are gorgeous- I love all the red shades.

I took about 200 more with my nice camera, albeit still through the front windshield and will post those shortly.

I managed to grab a few of the snow capped mountains as we flew out of Salt Lake City.

I'm amazed that there are about 3 times as many people in the greater Houston are than the entire state of Utah!

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: My utmost thanks and gratitude to those who serve our country in the armed forces & also to their families who endure so much to protect our freedoms.

Oh you HAVE to go back!! I love Utah's National Parks...some of my favorites!! Zion N.P. is my favorite. Arches is pretty cool and Bryce will just blow your mind. Robb and I went to SLC one year for Christmas when we lived in Vegas. There's an awesome little downtown a mini Denver. There's a cool historic hotel in downtown that allows dogs. It has gorgeous rooms. And next door was a theater that was showing a one man play of David Sedaris' Santa Land Diaries. It was so funny.

Hope you had a good time! Your iPhone takes great photos!
