"Blessed with endless skies and carved by eons of simply letting Mother Nature do her thing, the geological wonders of the American Southwest are a true thing beauty—and a photographer’s dream. Sometimes we're so focused on spanning oceans for our travels that we forget the magic moments we can create close to home."
—Dale Sherrow, Experience Designer
