Hello to all my friends :heart:

I have returned from a wonderful trip to the west coast of the US and Canada. I wish to thank you all for your wonderful tips before I left :hug:
I started off at San Francisco which was foggy on July 4th, went to Muir woods and then south to Los Altos Hills and stayed with a wonderful lady who really likes my photography. from there we traveled south to Monterey for whale watching but escaped east from the fires California suffered. from there we went to Yosemite National park, which was amazingly beautiful :faint:
Lake Tahoe was totally shadowed because of the smoke from the mentioned California fires, so we went to the Grand Teton (Amazing!!) and Yellowstone National Park. Both were absolutely breath taking wildlife and landscapes.
The next stop was Glacier National Park, from there it was Calgary, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. Highly recommended.
And Vancouver and Vancouver Island were nice dessert after this wonderful trip.

I have so much to say and write about each of these places and I wish I could write so much, but time is a luxury.
The Trip was so amazing it's hard to describe. So I'll let the photos do the talking for me ;)
I do apologize for submitting so few so far, since I got home I was so busy with work and university exams, that I didn't see all the photos myself yet, but I hope to do so soon :D


Here are some of the few I submitted so far

Lovely shots :) I went to San fransisco last year and I loved that place. I had the best clam chowder ever at the fisherman's wharf. Glad you had a good time traveling :D

What a wonderful trip it must have been... I've been to some of the places you mentioned in the US and all I can say is that I feel I just HAVE to come back there some day. Can't wait to see more captures of the beauty you witnessed :)

Wow - we coudl have travelled together - I arrived in San Francisco on the 7th July - headed to the east coast for a week, back to Sacramento - up to Lake Tahoe which at that time wasn't shadowed bythe smoke, but we saw the smoke from Yosemite driving back down to San francisco that day.

Then to San Diego via the coast road stopping in Monterey for a few hours. Stayed overnight at San Luis Obispo, then down thru Malibu, Santa Monica and Oceanside. 4 days in San Diego with a whistle stop tour of tijuana, back to San Francisco for a few days before going to Hawaii to lie on the beach and rest :)

I got home to NZ on the 4th Aug.

i can't help but think you might have been at anyone of those places at the same time as me and we missed each other LOL

Cheers
Robyn

sounds like we just missed each other.
I've been to NZ, and as a Kiwi, you're probably used to spectacular views :D

All the best

Your images from New Zealand are spectacular. I admire them greatly.

However, I think as a kiwi we tend to take our spectacular views for granted now. I find I'm more fascinated in cities when I'm travelling, as they're so different overseas to us. However I must admit a certain excitement when I fly into Auckland after a month away, and am pleased to see the greens and blue hues that we have down here.

Let me know if you're travelling down this way again and we'll hook up for a photo shoot :) I have a car, will travel :)

Cheers
Robyn
