Picture of the Day: Bighorn National Forest


The Bighorn National Forest is one of our favorite National Forests (because of the great name obviously). We didn’t see and Bighorn Sheep while we were there but we did see a moose out in the middle of a field. I would love to spend a couple days camping and exploring this unique Wyoming National Forest! 

Thanks! – Josh

Picture of the Day: Marmot posing in Grand Teton National Park


While hiking around Jenny Lake in Grand Teton NP, I saw quite a few marmots.  This one in particular seemed to want to pose for pictures so I obliged.   I also had a near miss on a moose in this same area.  Several hikers said it had run through this general area right before I came through.  Thanks for reading.  rk

Picture of the Day: Saguaro National Park

Typical view in Saguaro National Park

I have a friend who lives in Phoenix who considers the saguaro cactus to just be another plant, like I would consider a pine tree here in Georgia to be unremarkable.   However, I remember how excited I was the first time I saw a saguaro in Arizona.   It is such an iconic symbol of the west.   rk

Picture of the Day – Grand Canyon North Rim

The Grand Canyon is one of the United States’ most popular destinations and is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It is also one of my favorite places I have ever been. The vastness of the canyon is breathtaking and makes you realize how small you really are. This picture is from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon which is far less visited than the south rim. Almost directly straight across is the Bright Angel trail leading up to the South Rim from the canyon floor. 

Thanks! – Josh

Picture of the Day: Gondola Tour in Venice


This picture was taken on a gondola tour in Venice, Italy. I went last summer on a EF Tour with the art program at my school. The day we spent in Venice was cloudy and rainy, but thankfully the rain stopped long enough for us to ride the gondolas! The tour was very cool because it took you down waterway streets where we got to see colorful homes and vertical gardens! It was really beautiful and was one of my favorite memories from our Italy tour!   – Anya
