So it’s officially my last winter break and obviously I made no plans. After a few hours deliberation, I decided to embark on a 2-week trip from LA –> Vegas –> Utah –> Denver –> Phoenix –> SD –> LA to visit various friends and see awesome sights that I’ve only dreamed of (okay, Pinterested). So i left on a whim to see Cirque du Soleil in Vegas. It was on my childhood bucket list to see every Cirque show produced.
After missing my showtime due to traffic, being given a ticket for an even better seat for a late showtime, and thus getting to sleep at 2 AM, I got my hour of rest and zombied out of the hotel at 3 AM to make it to Zion for sunrise! My first traffic ticket, 3 hours driving, and an hour of lost time later, I made it. And it was beautiful.
I have a problem with selfies in that I’m incredibly awkward. But these locations were just TOO GOOD. So I decided to let my pride stay in Vegas (questionable?), set up my tripod, and got my shutter release good to go so I could get a shadow of the shots that I would have loved to get if I had a model with me. Oh, and I did it in my slippers.
Here are some of my favorite shots from my first few hours, which included Canyon Overlook, scenic drive, tunnels, SNOW!!!!, buffalo, ponies, and a magical fairyland of a European-esque village.
I think I’m getting closer to knowing what love is.
