Snow Canyon State park. We found a lot of canyon, but there was no snow to be seen. We did find some lava tubes though.
First stop on the the trip and only an hour from Vegas was Valley of Fire state park. A beautiful park which was the filming location for many movies including Star Trek Generations. The Valley of Fire was the desert planet where Kirk meets his end. Luckily for us we did not encounter any perilous metal bridges.
I’ve just gotten back from two weeks hiking in Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. I have a thousand photos to go through and pick the best, but while I process all the pictures here are a few choice pictures which I shared on instagram while on the road.
For these pictures I was experimenting with a newer faster photo editing workflow; still taking the pictures in RAW on my mirrorless camera, then transferring them to my phone to be processed with Lightroom mobile for posting to Instagram. The process worked pretty well, letting me post pictures from my camera almost immediately after the hike, and with almost the same level of post processing as if I were editing on my computer. The major missing feature was lack of support for HDR bracketing which I used a lot in the shadowed canyons of Arizona, so those pictures still need to be processed.
