I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

MWT - Cedar Breaks National Monument - Part 1


It's hard to believe while driving that Point Supreme at Cedar Breaks National Monument provides a distant view from over 10,000 feet in elevation plus a look deep into the canyon's amphitheater...

Incredible, stunning, out of this world and I have no adjectives to adequately describe these.

Hello Gaelyn, first of all, I like your "home is where I park it"..And I never get tired of seeing these majestic views. You are so close to nature. I look forward to the next posts!

The first picture is awesome, I can see why you chose it for this post. And the arches? wonderful. I didn't know you saw Gary, what a pleasant surprise.

Arija said...

Gaelyn, this is another of your fabulous places that makes me wish I could still make use or air travel. Thank you for showing us, at least I can see a little this way.

The American West is so stunningly gorgeous, yet in parts bleak like a moonscape. When the pioneers left the fertile midwest to cross the Rockies, they can't have been too thrilled to see all these rocks. Absolutely beautiful.

Diane AZ said...

I really enjoyed your photo tour of Cedar Breaks. Those dark green trees contrast so beautifully with the orange toned earth and the arch is awesome!

Reader Wil said...

What a life! Had I been younger and had the chance I would have liked to travel more than I do now!

Carver said...

Awesome photos of the southwest!

Janie said...

I see the arch!
We only visited Cedar Breaks once, many years ago, but I remember how beautiful and magnificent the amphitheatre is.

Swarna said...

Those pictures take my breath away. Beautiful brown country!

LadyFi said...

Wow - very dramatic scenery. Seems very unspoilt too.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Magnificent hardly describes these spectacular views. How lovely to meet up with old friends too.

Pyatshaw said...

You really must have some of the most magnificent , dramatic scenery in the world. It makes ours look really tame!
Great photography.

Tranquility said...

The sky and wildflowers are so pretty in that first photo!

Oh my goodness - those columns are just amazing!!

dAwN said...

Gorgeous photos Gaelyn! That cloud in the fist photo is very cool!

Louise said...

This is my favorite place on the planet. Honestly. I love the Bryce Canyon-like amphitheater on one side and the alpine meadows on the other. We go here EVERY year to take pictures of our kids in the wildflowers. When were you there????? We were there Tuesday, August 4, this year.
