One of the spectacular roads in Yellowstone National Park going north towards Mammoth.
When driving tbrough Yellowstone National Park in May its baby time. We did come along many bison babys, little bears etc. Due to their reddish color baby bisons are also called red dogs. Aren’t they cute!?
When we were walking along the North Rim Trail of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, somewhere between Lookout and Inspiration Point, we came across this small waterfall that came to life after it had been snowing and raining the entire day and the day before.
If anyone is interested, I took the picture handheld without a ND filter, with my Olymus OMD E-M10 (30mm,F/18, 1,6s, ISO 200). I was able to do so because in the afternoon the southrim is in the shade and pretty dark.
I was a good 150ft away but it seemed like he was well aware of me.
Antelope Canyon in Arizona was a must see for our trip through south west USA as it is especially interesting for taking pictures. The difficult question was to choose between upper and lower antelope Canyon. Due to the accessibility, the availability of tours (the canyon can only be accessed by a Navajo organized tour as it is on a Indian reservation) we chose the lower part of the canyon.
Another importand point to consider was the time of day of the tour. If taking pictures is important this is the most important fact to consider. After massive online research to find out about different experiences we chose a tour at 10:30 with Lower Antelope Canyon Tours.
The opinions differ on whether the sun is better in the morning or in the afternoon. If you just want to visit the canyon and enjoy its beauty it simply doesnt matter. If you would like to take good pictures try to catch a sunny day and do not go when the sun is highest as you might miss the cool shadows and the spectacular light inside of the Slot canyon.

Getting up at 4:15am to drive 110 miles fro SLC to the Bonneville Salt Flats was absolutely worth it! Being on I-80 West we were on the right site of the road as there is a rest area directly at the salt flats. When we arrive there it was shortly after 6am and the light was just beautiful.
