My 2015 Road Trip: America’s West


Finally vacation again!

These were absolutely necessary to unwind, refresh, re-asses, refocus on what’s important. It was amazing trip spanning 6 States (California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona) and many many National and State Parks. Over the next few weeks I will do a series of all the places we stopped and show my most favorite photos.
