The Surreal Landscape of Grand Canyon


4 Comments

When you flip through pages of travelers magazine, often you are able to spot some eye-catching landscape of the Grand Canyon. I have only been to the South Rim twice and I still want to go back and immerse myself in that majestic surrounding anytime. Probably my next few checkpoints for Grand Canyon will be the North Rim and West Rim which is famous for the Skywalk. And I love to do a multi-day hike to the bottom of the canyon, along the Colorado River. The South Rim is pretty touristy, especially during summer. But don’t worry, there are enough sights to go around given the massive amount of visitors.

The shuttle-only route which runs along Hermit Road is recommended for day trips, otherwise if you have the time, make the drive to Desert View Lookout. This is one of my favorite lookout point. It offers spectacular views of the canyon, even better during sunsets. I came across a couple having their wedding shots taken there, those shots must be stunning!

A Pictorial View of Death Valley


No Comments

If you are around the west coast of USA, or making a trip to Las Vegas, you can’t miss out Death Valley. It is the lowest and driest point in North America. It offers a different kind of beauty compared to famous National Parks like Yellowstone. I got in Death Valley via CA-190 from Las Vegas. You can go for miles and miles without seeing any single soul around, and that is going to leave you wondering what if your car breaks down in the middle of the desert.

Brooklyn Bridge In Black And White


7 Comments

The Brooklyn Bridge is on almost every tourist to-see list in New York City. I wouldn’t say it is overrated. Consider it a good stroll offering beautiful views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. I shall just name this week the ‘bridge’ week because my previous post was about Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Let me see if I can recall any more bridges for this week.
