There will be another blog post coming up this weekend once I’ve had time to dissect and reflect my thoughts on the whole experience. It was overall a great adventure and it was the perfect mix between relaxation and exploration.

I’m currently sitting on the couch in my living room with an ice pack pressed against my neck due to being rear ended on the free way today. Not too much writing going on tonight, but I wanted to make sure I shared the photos with everyone soon! More photos and thoughts will be up, but until then, I’ll be editing some photos, icing my neck, and collecting a few thoughts.

Aloha Coconuts and enjoy the photos!

Horseshoe Bend- Page, AZ @ Sunrise (or slightly after)

I loved the view of Horseshoe Bend this early in the day. I think these photos capture the juxtaposition between shade and light. The sun rose behind us, so the harsh contrast was actually a treat for us to see. The rocks are almost a completely different color. They appear a purplish hue until it’s in the light where it becomes a reddish, orange.

The day is warming up and the sun is rising higher in the sky. The rocks turn to dusty yellow, and the water reflects light like glass. Captured on iPhone

We were in Arizona during “Monsoon” season. Slight humidity in the air causes frequent thunder storms in the canyon. This photo shows the start of a thunder storm coming in.
