美國西部 The Western United States 2018./


相信每個人都會有一個旅行願望清單….
羚羊峽谷就是我的其中之一,也是造就這趟美國西部之旅的觸發點。

羚羊峽谷分為上谷和下谷,都是飽歷百萬年的風雨侵蝕而形成,在那片紅海裡,每一個波紋都是獨特且變幻莫測。值得一提,當你到訪上羚羊峽谷,尤其在中午時分,峽縫滲進來的光束更是引人入勝。


走進過狹縫型的峽谷;再登上直升機看過大峽谷,浩瀚無比的土地被落霞所包圍著,很是壯觀。若然時間許可,不防也看看大峽谷的日出,那遼闊的視野會帶給你不一樣的感覺,明白到人的渺小。

除了亞利桑那州,加州及猶他州也有很多美景值得到訪。

在洛杉磯的沙漠地帶,一位八十歲的老爺爺Leonard Knight為傳遞「God is Love」和愛的理念,花費了30年時間創造了奇幻色彩的救贖山,想要展示是「愛」存在於世界各個角落。

而猶他州的代表就是最知名的五座國家公園(Mighty Five)之一的拱門國家公園。公園本身的岩石來自於6500萬年前,經歷土地的擠壓和移動讓底層的山石岩層慢慢來到陸地上,不斷的膨脹和收縮而形成現在的模樣。

在這趟旅程中,最後值得一記的是我在拉斯維加斯看了第一次大衛高柏菲的表演呢,真的很精彩。


What’s in your travel bucket list? Iceland? Egypt?

One of mine must be Antelope Canyon at the Arizona which drives me to start my new journey.

Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon contains the Upper Antelope Canyon and the Lower Antelope Canyon. They were shaped by millions of years of water and wind erosion which made every wave unique. Around noon time, beams of direct sunlight radiating down from openings at the top of the Upper Antelope Canyon make it looks even more mysterious.

Other than the narrow slot canyon, getting on a helicopter to travel over the Grand Canyon was another great experience. The sunrise and sunset there were so special and spectacular that taught us “the universe is huge and human beings are small”.

Other than Arizona, California and Utah got some nice sceneries to visit too.

At the desert area in California, an 80-year-old man Leonard Knight spent over 30 years to build the Salvation Mountain with recycled materials, hay and to spread the love and the message of “God is Love”.

Arches National Park, one of the Utah Mighty Five, has the highest concentration of natural arches in the world, a phenomenon that gives the park a unique charm. The story of Arches begins roughly 65 million years ago, and the spectacular red rock wonderland sculpted by wind, water & time over decants.

Another memorable thing to round up this trip is my first watch of magic performance of  David Copperfield at Las Vegas, and it was such a great show.
