Arizona, USA, 2020 Winter Break Trip

During the winter break between Dec. 2019 and Jan. 2020, I went on a great trip across the US: starting from Michigan, I went to Illinois, took a train (the California Zephyr) to California, then drove to Nevada, Utah, and in the end Arizona. This trip took us 18 days and we found great joy in it, especially in photography.

We spent a total of 6 days in Arizona, including 1 day at Page, 3 days at the Grand Canyon, and 2 days at Phoenix. I have only posted the photos at the Grand Canyon for now. I will update the others in the future.

Grand Canyon National Park

The magnificence of the Grand Canyon is beyond description. It still stands true at night. I found this magical place with the desert tower, and took this photo on a very cold cold night. (There are many wild animals at the Grand Canyon, possibly including leopards. We were lucky that we did not encounter them, but be careful if you are out there, especially at night.)
