I took a vacation to Utah in early October to visit the five US National Parks there. Pretty packed trip with a lot of driving (1200 miles!) and plenty of photography. Here's a few select photos from the trip from my DSLR. I also shot a dozen frames of medium format slide film. Those aren't developed yet, but when they are I'll share them here.

Arches was probably my favorite, so here's a few more from there:

Hey Rich, these look pretty great, and it looks like a great trip. I actually have been to all of those places except for Canyonlands, doing night photography there and exploring.

Thanks Ken! Feel free to share some of those shots here if you want.

Definitely worth the trip out west. The landscape out there is incredibly inspiring, especially for a photographer!

Awesome Ken! I didn't have time to do the drive on the dirt roads through Capitol Reef, hoping to do it on a return visit someday.

Thanks. If I recall correctly, it was 17 miles one way, so it's definitely a commitment.

A few months prior to doing this trip, I thought about this trip, all on dirt roads, and it was the final straw in deciding to trade in my old car which had been starting to have mechanical problems, purchasing a new one. There's a few places I go where I feel better with a newer car. I always have emergency supplies and food and tons of water, a battery charger, and tell people where I'm going and when I expect to be back.

Anyway, the place is totally worth going. It's glorious day or night.

Beautiful! The nigh view of Double Arch, Arches NP, Utah is awesome. It would be an amazing experience if I go there.

I might say it above or elsewhere on this forum, but I think south Utah may be the most beautiful and dramatic place in the entire country.
