Rocky road

Just returned from a fantastic road trip through several scenic national parks and other colorful-rock areas of  Utah: Moab, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Zion National Park, Escalante Petrified Forest State Park and Capitol Reef National Park. So much design inspiration in sandstone cliffs, arches and canyons of the region, not to mention abundant wildflowers in bloom in May.

Let’s see how some of the images captured on this trip match up with some projects from the DBKN collection:

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Such a wondrous landscape not to be missed. We highly recommend the trip (especially in May, before it gets too hot.) Some of our fave adventures (arranged by reservation through the Moab Adventure Center and Canyonlands by Night & Day) were the sunset bus tour of Arches National Park and the jetboat tour on the Colorado River. They were both awesome!


And what was my travel project for all those miles on the road? I managed to complete one lonely, sad anklet in leftover sock yarn!
