The Grand Junction may be a small town in Colorado, but it sure packs a punch when it comes to street art. On every corner of their Main Street is a work of art that the city government either has commissioned or are featuring (works of artists that have participated in the competition the town holds every year). Here we present some of the impressive ones.

Choose Your Own Adventure At The Badlands

Ted Nelson in Bach Ma National Park Vietnam

Just about everything anybody in Europe knows about the “Badlands” in South Dakota – to the extent that they know anything about them at all – is that they provide the setting and the title for a classic outlaw movie, a sort of Bonnie and Clyde for the 1970s.

"Leigh McAdam"

A guest post by Leigh McAdam

 

I have an ongoing love affair with the red rock country of Utah. One of my favourite spots is Arches National Park, just 5 miles outside the town of Moab, Utah. It offers a landscape of otherworldly red rock formations and over 2000 natural sandstone arches. Fortunately, many are easily accessible on a large number of hiking trails. The question is where do you start

Cow Pies Trail In Red Rock Country

"Sign saying Cowpie's Trail in Sedona"

Hiking on the Cow Pies Trail

is how we tamed the”wild west” and it’s the hiking adventure we enjoyed the most. This was the first trail we did, just outside the town of Sedona in Northern Arizona, a day after our arrival.

If you have no time for a long hike, a walk in the park (or as I would like to call it, an easy hike) will do just fine – particularly, if it’s the right park. Alex has got the right address for you.

Nature’s Super Models In The Four Corners

"Easy Hiker in Sedona Arizona"

We went on a road trip in the USA, doing the Four Corners (AZ, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah). Along the way, we’ve been taking photos as we usually do on our holidays. Looking at the shots we’ve taken, we realised that no matter that we are total amateurs, there were some awesome pictures. Not really thanks to our talent, more because the scenes and the places we’ve visited were so heart-stoppingly beautiful. We could
