Trip in Pictures: Highlights Of My Driving Travel Photography Trip to Southwest of US

This is updated post with the highlights of my driving travel photography trip to Southwest of US. At this point I processed most of the photos and I can properly illustrate the key moments of the trip.

I started the adventure in Phoenix and drove through Sedona to Grand Canyon. My next stop was in Kanab, from where It was easy to reach to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. From Kanab I drove through the desert to Las Vegas and my final destination was Los Angeles.
