Kodachrome Basin State Park, Utah

Kodachrome Basin State Park was one of the strangest places I found on my trip. It is a small park with fifty-seven sandstone pinnacles and columns called sand pipes concentrated in a tiny area.

Zion National Park, Utah

The small pygmy trees resemble bonsai trees, but instead of being created by the hands of expert gardeners, their roots were stunted by the lack of water and nutrients and a suitable place to develop.

Bryce Canyon National Park

The days in winter are short; the sun sets early, and the twilight extends, highlighting the horizon, and as the sun sets and the golden light moves along the tops of those fantastic chimneys, the first stars appear.

Mossy Cave

I saw that the open grotto received enough light to allow moss to grow, and the ceiling surface, made of permeable limestone, let water create a stable drip. In winter, these drops turn into icicles.
