Utah, 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 2 days in Utah, most of which were spent on in the Monument Valley. It is one of the locations where the film “Forest Gump” was shot. The geology there was unique and beautiful: definitely a meaningful place to visit for a trip.

Monument Valley

We spent the New Year’s Eve at the Monument Valley. Instead of gathering with family and friends, we chose to drive into the valley and take photos of the beautiful sky.

Even if there were no stars, the sky could still be very beautiful.
