USA trip Photothread.

Recommended Posts

Managed to finally get back online since i returned from the trip. Got to do some really cool things, an see some great places.

Thanks to BOATS N HOES for some good info on areas to stay an things to do whilst in SD.

 

Photos are a mix of phone snaps, an SLR. an might be a bit jumbled.

 

First stop LAX.

i defiantly think the highlight of the trip was the rapids through the canyon. im shit at swimming so was a bit nervous about the whole thing.

there were a few stops on the way down, where you could scramble about through rocks an stuff.

then a chopper back up when you reached the bottom. helicopter feels like the most unstable thing to be in whilst traveling.

Excellent thread. Thanks for taking the time. The SW of the US is an amazing place, isn't it. Southern Utah is on my list of places to go, still haven't made it there yet. Death Valley is HUGE and I want to spend a week there sometime.

Yeah, seeing this makes me want to go to Utah. Jerome, AZ looks awesome too! You lucked having that old car parked in-front of that half building, great shot.

 

So, just to be clear....all photo/travel threads are going in "Untitled" now?

Well, since GBM's thread was moved here and after reading the conversation they had I figured photo/travel threads should be placed here to boost ill content. Fine by me.....dope thread drumart.
