Forest Canyon Overlook

[Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA]
On the Train Ridge Road (US34) – experiencing alpine tundra and waiting for more stormy clouds. Stop #5 – Forest Canyon Overlook.
For sure Train Ridge Road is one of the most scenic America’s roads and the highest continuous highway in USA. It was not possible to get much further, as the road was still closed for winter season (picture taken in May).
Quite unusual to get at this elevation (11716 feet, which is over 3,5km) with such comfortable road.

Yellow hope

[Death Valley National Park, California, USA]
Death Valley – saline, cracked shell. It is the hottest and driest of the national parks in USA, with temperatures reaching 50°C. The only water you can find here is very salty and not drinkable, of course. Even thought, some plants have adapted to this environment – impressing determination to survive.

Wild, Wild West is dead

[Benton, California, USA]
Somewhere on the road during crazy road-trip from San Francisco,CA to Denver,CO. Refuel before heading to Death Valley’s deserts. Guy riding a horse is slowly approaching bar at the petrol station. Do I have sun-stroke already? It was something mystic,unreal. Wild, Wild West is dead.

Navajo’s portrait

[Canyon de Chelly, Arizona, USA]
When you enter Navajo Indians area, there are some DO’s and DON’Ts you should respect. One of them is not to take pictures of people without asking permission.
This Navaho mother was happy to grant me a permission, especially after selling me some souvenirs from her stand, located next to one of canyon’s vista points.
