This fall actually consisted of two trips. The first was to New Mexico (a first for me), Utah and Arizona. The second trip was to the Big Bend region of Texas. Here, I will combine the two trips. Half of these trips were to new areas for me. The rest was to new places in old areas.
NM: The Taos area
UT: Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
AZ: Grand Canyon – Parashant National Monument, Grand Canyon (North Rim and South Rim)
TX: Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park
