Photo of the Week - Sandstone Formations Along the Burr Trail

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah

This image highlights the type of scenery that surrounded us during our drive through Long Canyon on the Burr Trail. Rocky cliffs towered above us, proudly proclaiming their rugged beauty. I wish I had taken more photographs to stitch together in Photoshop for panoramas like this. I think panoramas really help to showcase the magnitude of the western landscape!

(P.S. Don't forget to click on the photo to see it bigger!)


  1. beautifully offset by that blue, blue sky!

  2. It's beautiful and that sky is such a pretty shade of blue

  3. It is truly beautiful. So glad that you traveled to get there so I could see it from the comfort of my easy chair.

  4. Gorgeous! I love this. :)

  5. I always loved the Western landscape so much on our travels - people who've not visited our US National Parks just don't know the beauty they're missing!

    Wonderful photo Donna - and that blue, blue sky, wow!
    Sending hugs and hope things are going well .

  6. And what amazing panoramas they are! Photos such as this give me a glimpse, even though I have never traveled out west. I imagine that it is stunning!

  7. Very beautiful! Love the contrast between the red rock and the blue sky!

  8. Friends of mine recently moved to Utah and have been posting photos on FB of their scenic drives, hikes, etc. It all looks beautiful there! :)


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
