This week's theme in the 52 Photos Project is Wide Open Spaces. I thought I'd share a picture from our trip to Vegas and Utah a couple of years ago. That's about as far into wide open space I'd ever been able to see.
This picture was taken from the top of a long high plateau looking down into the canyon. The yellow trees in the center are along a creek and are way, way down. They are full grown hardwoods. The top of the photo show land miles and miles away. The canyon and the lands beyond opened before you in this view.
In the foreground is a small green tree that is twisted and stunted in growth from the harsh dry conditions there. You have to take a lesson from the tenacity of such a stubborn little tree that grows there despite the difficulties.
This was a great trip filled with landscapes unlike any I had ever seen before. I think I'm ready for some new adventures now.
What is the most memorable trip you've been on? Maybe your comments will send me there.
