I have so many things I want to blog about and I have so many sessions I should be posting sooner than this post, but this post is for me. I love photographing landscapes and nature and I love to explore and be as adventurous as I possibly can. That’s why we do quite a bit of rock climbing, take road trips and just see the country. There are so many beautiful, unusual and awesome places right here in the United States that I am happy to call this country home.
So, in April we went on a rock climbing adventure trip to Utah to visit my parents (they were there vacationing as well) and also to check out Moab and Indian Creek (which is world renowned for crack climbing). Overall it was a really great trip and it was also a very challenging climbing trip for me. We started off with a few bumps– getting a late start, a flat tire etc– but as we all know, that’s part of the adventure! 🙂
Indian Creek is located in southeaster Utah and if you are into rock climbing then you have probably heard of this famous crack climbing destination. It’s full of sandstone cracks that even the non climber can appreciate. This area was without a doubt one of the most beautiful and remote places I have ever visited. Maybe it’s remoteness is what made it so amazing. The golden cliffs, the grasslands below… there was just something about this place that makes me want to go back… Not to mention I really need to up my climbing game to get there again. So, I guess a goal is in order… next year, I will go back to Indian Creek and I will not have to “take” on at least one climb 🙂 (sad goal, but oh, so true for me!)
