Southwest USA Road Trip

New photo Galleries now available from a road trip around southwest United States of America (USA) to California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada.

In May 2023 I was fortunate to experience a fantastic road trip around Southwest USA with my wife Helen. The trip included four states - California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada, and iconic National Parks such as the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Death Valley and Yosemite amongst others.

I have now prepared Galleries including many photos of the trip, including cityscapes, landscapes and wildlife which can be found in this link to the North America Main Gallery.
