Here is a photo essay from a road trip down the West Coast we took before our departure for the Peace Corps as we tried to see as much of America as possible.

We began our trip driving down the coast from Portland, Oregon to San Francisco before cutting inland to see Pinnacles National Park and Joshua Tree National Park.

Following our trip to Joshua Tree we took a trip to the Grand Canyon where we hiked to the bottom.

After our hike we stopped by Antelope canyon, one of the most recognizable spots for photographers in the world.  The woman was incredibly unhelpful and refused to sell me a photographer pass (because a mirrorless camera isn’t professional enough) but we did the regular tour and still had a good time.

Leaving Arizona, we made our way to Colorado to see Mesa Verde and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Parks.

Our last big destination was Utah to see the three National Parks there we had not yet seen: Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef.
