Mount Timpanogos

Mount Timpanogos Wasatch Mountains, Utah Gallery: Southwest Mountains If you guessed the Cascade Range… …you’d be wrong. Utah is one of the best-kept secrets of the United States.

Mystic Falls

Mystic Falls San Juan Mountains, Colorado Gallery: San Juan Mountains (West) Hands down, one of my favorite places on earth… When I saw a photo of this online, I knew I had to find it. At the time, knowledge of the exact location was scarce. I knew the town it was near (Ames, near Telluride), […]
