Zion #32
Zion National Park in Utah is my personal favorite of all US national parks. Zion Valley has some terrific day hikes and offers spectacular scenery even from a car or bus window.

Zion in Mist #100
In the winter, sometimes the Zion Valley walls are clouded in mist.

Machu Picchu #5466
The weather at Machu Picchu changes often and quickly. It is often encased in clouds and fog but is always spectacular. For more photos of Machu Picchu, see TheWorldinLight Machu Picchu Page.

Zion in Mist #101
Zion National Park is colorful, even in the fog. The canyon walls are mostly red with occasional sections covered in desert varnish.

The Wave #0378

Half Dome #26
Half Dome is one of those famous landmarks that defines a place - in this case, Yosemite National Park in California.

Coyote Buttes #17
Coyote Buttes is full of beautifully colored, striated and textured sandstone.

Coyote Buttes #4
In the early spring, the arid region known as Coyote Buttes comes alive with beautiful wildflowers.

The Wave #0370

Pictured Rocks #36
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is located on the northern shores of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There is a scenic trail that winds along the Lake Superior shore, sometimes along cliff that is several hundred feet above the lake level, offering excellent views of deep blue-green water and the colorful cliffs from which this area gets its name.

Pictured Rocks #44
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is in a relatively remote section of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. A trip here also deserves some time for exploring the many waterfalls in this part of Michigan.

Machu Picchu #5500
Machu Picchu is the most famous set of Incan ruins in the Andes Mountains of Peru. For more photos of Machu Picchu, see TheWorldinLight Machu Picchu Page.

Machu Picchu #5540
The 500 year old Incan ruins of Machu Picchu were only re-discovered in the 1930's. Now fully restored, this site is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Peru. For more photos of Machu Picchu, see TheWorldinLight Machu Picchu Page.

Machu Picchu #5584
Machu Picchu is located in an absolutely stunningly beautiful setting in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The ruins can be reached by a multi-day trek through the Andes Mountains via the Inca Trail, or by train to the town of Aguas Calientes at the base of the mountains upon which the ruins reside. For more photos of Machu Picchu, see TheWorldinLight Machu Picchu Page.

Coyote Buttes #12
The area known as Coyote Buttes is under the control of the Bureau of Land Management, which issues permits for hikers to enter the area.

Coyote Buttes #230
There are several specific locations worth visiting in the Coyote Buttes area. I suggest Buckskin Gulch - perhaps the longest slot canyon in the world - as well as "The Wave", a spectacularly scenic portion of the buttes.

Coyote Buttes #244
Some sections of Coyote Buttes are so tightly controlled by the BLM that reservations must be made months in advance. However, if you haven't planned that far in advance, there is a daily lottery for a limited number of entry passes valid for the following day.

Coyote Buttes #250
Throughout much of Coyote Buttes there aren't really hiking trails. And this works fine because the area is so beautiful, it's a pleasure to wander and explore and discover beautiful nooks and crannies within the rocks.

Big Sur #3
Big Sur is a beautiful area of Pacific seashore just a few hours south of San Francisco.

Big Sur #4
The Pacific coast south of San Francisco is absolutely beautiful. Highway 1 along the coast provides many turnoffs that yield striking views of cliffs falling into beautifully deep blue ocean.

Big Sur #7
The views along the Big Sur shoreline constantly change with the weather. If you're visiting San Francisco, this area deserves a day of exploration.

Antelope Canyon #25
Just outside Page, Arizona on Navajo land is this beautiful slot canyon known as Antelope Canyon.

Miners Falls
This is one of the many waterfalls located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Cadillac Mountain #904
Cadillac Mountain on the coast of Maine and part of Acadia National Park, is often encased in clouds and fog.

Machu Picchu #5451
It's very easy to spend most of an entire day exploring Machu Picchu.
