2 Things Photo Challenge - Rough/Smooth


Bryce Canyon National Park located in Southern Utah


South Rim of the Grand Canyon, in Northern Arizona

My contribution to 2thingsphotochallenge.

These photos were taken on a road trip we took last year through Arizona and Utah specifically to visit Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, South Rim Grand Canyon and Sedona.

While both terra's are vast and expansive, the buttes of the Grand Canyon, lush with lichen and rising from the Colorado river seem smooth. In comparison to the rough terra at Bryce Canyon, where the landscape is vast with rugged spires and pinnacles that rise from the deep canyonlands.

Have a wonderful week!

Thank you kindly for your visits and kind words-

I love that country. I grew up near there in N. AZ, so it brings back fond memories!
