Like anyone on the streets, we are complete strangers. But hold on, I know you. You flip through countless pages of National Geographic Traveler magazines at the bookstore, look up many travel blogs, and your favorite channels have all got to do with travels. Doing so much to find any bit of inspiration to stir you into buying an air ticket and flying away for some time, you are indeed very inspired. But yet you have second thoughts when it comes to serious talk about buying that air ticket. You want to be an audience, a spectator that read and watch people’s travels out of your comfort zone. Deep down, there is a huge burning desire to get out there and unleash that adventurous and carefree spirit of yours.
The Antelope Canyon is located at Page, Arizona. It is one of the most visited ‘slot’ canyon in the American Southwest. It is mainly split into the Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon. The Lower Antelope Canyon is less visited but still attracts a good amount of photographer. For purchase of the tour run by the Navajo tribe, it can bought from the parking area. The tour starts off with a 20 minutes 4×4 drive to the canyon site. I actually enjoyed the ride although it was bumpy with sand flying all around. There are specific timings for the tour because the sunlight will get into the canyon at around noon in the summer. I paid 40 dollars for the tour. Should you take it? I thought it was worth the money because it was on my ‘to-see’ bucket list for first timer.
I am a big fan of America’s National Park. I wish I could spend my time camping around these national parks because that is the best way to soak up what nature has got to offer. Many of these national parks are no doubt beautiful but I came across these particularly five that captured my attention.
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
The area of this national park is real big, it extends into Idaho and Montana. If you remember how water fountains works, you get to see the real one here. Geysers eruption are stunning and explosive as the mother earth can get. There are many waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park, each captivating to their own. This place is a heaven for hikers and photographers. And not forgetting wildlife lovers, the wildlife are pretty diverse. One of my favorite moments would be herds of bison crossing. A couple of days is needed to see most of this national park due to its immerse size.
