Photos following our color of the month, RED! Just in time for Valentines day, I’m showing you a couple areas we love to visit.

Utah’s Red Rock Areas!

Utah’s red rock never ceases to amaze and we return as often as we can. The Bryce National Park is one of my favorites for geological formations and layers of color.

Beyond the national park there are numerous other areas to explore full of red rock. We ventured into Casto Canyon and Arches Trail for hiking that was more remote. No crowds, quiet and spectacular views. Plan a stop at the Red Canyon Visitor Center along Highway 12 for maps. The ranger we spoke to was very knowledgable on the area and the various trails to pick from.

Wyoming’s Red Rocks

A new find in 2022 was an area near Lander, WY. Louis Lake Road was the destination which allowed us to explore the surrounding areas. We found an old mining town, an underground river and this red rolling hill and jeep trail.

Arizona’s Red Rocks

When Arizona and red rocks are combined you correctly think of the Sedona, AZ area. Popular for art and red rocks along with dining, spas, hikes and views galore. We’ve only been there once (so far) and found both jeep trails and hikes very rewarding.

Red in Name Only!

As I browsed through my red photos, our recent visit to the Redwoods in California made my heart stutter. The complete Coastal California trip is a bucket list item and the memory of my breath being taken away. If you’ve never been or haven’t heard of it, add it to that bucket list now! Redwoods are magnificent and 95% of the worlds redwoods are in California. The dense, coastal, fog is the best environment to keep these old giants going strong.

Red Lodge, MT

It’s not red rocks but the Rock Creek runs through this little town located in beautiful Montana. A small tourist town catering to skiers in the winter and travelers in the summer is Steve’s hometown. Since we retired, it is an annual hangout for us in the summer time. Last year we made it for July 4th celebrations; the small town life is alive and well!
